Church bells to return to Chile


A set of church bells which have resided in Oystermouth, Swansea, for nearly 150 years could return to Chile to form a memorial. The bells were shipped from Santiago to be melted down after the cathedral they were housed in burned down, killing 2,500 people.

Gilbert John reports.
