Peru miners trapped by rockfall

Rescue teams in Peru are trying to free nine mine workers trapped underground by a rockfall at the Cabeza de Negro copper and gold mine in the south of the country.

The miners, who are receiving food and drink through a hose, are in communication with people on the surface and say they have no serious injuries but do feel desperate.

Nick Childs reports.
