Delivery service for the remote island of St Helena


The tiny British colony of St Helena in the South Atlantic - the world's most remote inhabited island - is being hit by Whitehall's spending cuts.

An airport considered by many to be vital for the island's future has been cancelled.

The Royal Mail Ship St Helena currently delivers all sorts of supplies to the community.

Second officer Mia Henry gave BBC News a tour of the ship's bridge and cargo hold.
