China quake zone one year on


A year on from the earthquake in the Sichuan province of China and people are still visiting the region to remember the dead. The disaster killed more than 85,000 and 5 million people lost their homes.

One town - Beichuan - was almost entirely destroyed and now the ruins attract hundreds of Chinese tourists.

The BBC's China correspondent James Reynolds went to see them.
