Protest at tube station fire anniversary

Wreaths were laid inside Kings Cross station today, marking the 25th anniversary of the devastating fire which took 31 lives in 1987. Outside RMT members protested against planned cuts to the Underground.

They claimed that proposed changes including a reduction in staffing levels could make the capital's tube network unsafe again. Transport for London has hit back, saying protesters have hijacked a poignant day to make a political point. Toby Sadler reports.
