Famous sculpture on a Knife Edge

It's a sculpture by one of Britain's most famous artists which stands opposite the Houses of Parliament, but it has been allowed to fall into disrepair - because nobody knew who was responsible for its upkeep.

Aiden James uncovers the story with Melanie Unwin, deputy curator of the Parliamentary Art Collection, and Anita Feldman from the Henry Moore Foundation.
