Octuplets to be financially protected

A judge in California has appointed a guardian to look after the financial interests of octuplets born earlier this year.

It follows an announcement that the mother of the eight babies has agreed to allow her children to appear in a reality TV show.

The six boys and two girls are the world's longest surviving octuplets.

Peter Bowes reports.
