The man who 'sees' Virgin Mary every day

For almost 30 years, the Virgin Mary has been said to appear daily in Medjugorje - a small village in Bosnia-Hercegovina.

Six children first reported the apparition in June 1981, and although the Vatican has not yet recognised the miracle, it has not discouraged the faithful. The village is the fastest-growing Catholic pilgrimage site in the world.

Allan Little speaks to local people about the phenomenon, including a man who claims to see the Virgin Mary on a daily basis.
