Birmingham rioters reflect on their sentences


Prison sentences totalling almost 2,000 years have been handed out to rioters following the disorder which began exactly a year ago.

Correspondent Phil Mackie reports from Birmingham, a city which saw some of the worst violence in last year's riots.

He speaks to some of those who were punished for taking part, including a 45 year-old man who said he believed his sentence was "harsh" and changed his life in many ways.
