Pompeii's frozen victims display

The skeletal remains of some of the victims of Pompeii have gone on display, nearly 2,000 years after Mount Vesuvius erupted and buried the Roman city.

The remains have been coated in plaster to preserve their human or animal form.

Duncan Kennedy reports from Pompeii.
