Conservationists break world tree-planting record


Conservation volunteers have broken the world record for the largest number of trees to be planted in one hour.

One hundred people took part in the event in Londonderry, Northern Ireland, as part of a BBC initiative called "Breathing places".

Volunteers also hope to have broken another much larger record.

James Ingham reports.
