Global switch-off for Earth Hour

Landmark buildings across the world faded into darkness as lights were switched off as part of Earth Hour.

The ''lights out'' event started in Australia three years ago, and it was the first country to turn off in 2010.

Lights were also turned off at famous landmarks in Hong Kong, India, Germany and France. Alastair Yates reports.
