Mystery of wedding ring solved


A team of divers will present an Orkney museum with a wedding ring they found while they were diving off the island of South Ronaldsay. It belonged to one of the 188 crewmen who died when two British warships ran aground, while they were on patrol during World War I. Huw Williams reports on the detective work that went into finding out who the sailor was, and tracing his family.
