Five arrests as cargo ship delayed by environment protestors

Five people have been arrested after Greenpeace protestors boarded a cargo ship in the Thames Estuary - while others stormed a port - in disruption lasting 36 hours.

They were demonstrating against Volkswagen and its diesel vehicles as shipments arrived in the South East. The target - Sheerness Port, on the Isle of Sheppey.

But, the German car giant told us its shipment contains vehicles that meet strict EU standards. Tom Savvides has the latest.
