Slovaks welcome Queen to capital


The Queen has received a traditional Slovak welcome in the capital Bratislava during her four-day state visit of central Europe.

The monarch met Sir Nicholas Winton, nicknamed "Britain's Schindler", along with some of the 670 Jewish children from the then Czechoslovakia who he rescued before World War II.

Peter Hunt reports.
