Chile miners' rescue imminent

The first of the Chile miners - trapped 2000 feet below ground for more than two months - are due to be winched to the surface late on Tuesday.

The miners' ordeal is the longest suffered by a group of miners caught underground; the effort to free them began on 17 September as the drilling of the rescue shaft began.

Andrew Harding reports from Copiapo.
