Children sing their support for City of Culture bid

Children from a Leicester primary school are singing their support for their hometown's City of Culture 2017 bid with the specially-written Anthem for Leicester.

The youngsters, from Stoneygate College, are hoping their song will give the city's bid a rousing send-off before it goes to the government to be considered on Monday.
