Paired towns: Boring man explains Dull decision

The US town of Boring in Oregon has voted in favour of "pairing" with the village of Dull in Perthshire, Scotland.

Boring decided for the move in the interests of transatlantic relations, tourism and humour, after being approached by residents in Dull.

Steve Bates, the chairman of the Boring Community Planning Organisation, explained to BBC Radio 5 live Breakfast's Anna Foster why they decided to link up with Dull.
