  • Video report by ITV News Political Correspondent Carl Dinnen

The presidents of Venezuela and Bolivia will arrive in Cuba later on Tuesday to pay their respects to Fidel Castro.

They will join thousands of people taking part in a rally in Havana to honour their former President and international icon.
