S Korea ferry: Weather hampers rescue effort

Difficult weather conditions have hampered the search for survivors of the South Korean ferry disaster.

Emergency services are continuing to look for nearly 300 people, still missing after a ferry carrying more than 470 sank off South Korea.

It is still not yet known what caused the incident, but there is a growing sense of anger as reports emerge that people were told to stay in their seats when the ship ran into trouble.

Lucy Williamson reports from Jindo.
