Hope for Nicaragua dump residents

A huge dump in the capital of Nicaragua is being rehabilitated after almost 40 years of taking in the country's waste.

The Spanish government is helping to fund the $40m project to cover the site and help the thousands of people who rely on the dump for food and a place to live.
