Lumley ends Nepal trip on high


The actress and campaigner Joanna Lumley is due to leave Nepal after a week-long trip which has seen her mobbed by crowds of Gurkha supporters.

On her arrival she was greeted with signs describing her as a "goddess", after she fronted a campaign for UK settlement rights for Gurkhas.

Alastair Leithead followed her visit.
