Women's history library under threat

A collection at the London Metropolitan Museum, dedicated to women's history, is under threat.

The collection, which is the biggest of it's kind in Europe, includes a unique item from one of the bloodiest moments in the fight to give women the vote, copies of "Bridget Jones' Diary" and the teen-magazine "Jackie."

But unless more funding or a new home is found for the collection by December, the library's opening times will be reduced from five days a week to just one.

Liz Wickham has the full story.
