Confusion over Iceland debt referendum


The people of Iceland go to the polls today in the country's first ever referendum. They will vote on whether or not to accept an agreement struck with the UK and the Netherlands over the repayment of billions of pounds following the collapse of the Iceland-based internet bank Icesave in 2008. Europe correspondent Jonny Dymond explains how there's real bitterness in Iceland about the way it has been treated by the Netherlands and especially by the UK.
