'Life still a struggle' for Rana Plaza victims

The victims of the Rana Plaza factory collapse are still struggling to cope financially, a year on from the disaster in Bangladesh.

Naneen Akter Nazma lost her husband in the collapse. She told ITV News that she is still too afraid to work as she is concerned that another factory could collapse like Rana Plaza.

"I'm very scared. I'm even scared to do any job and I don't want to go to any garment factory. I don't want to work anywhere like it. Another factory will collapse like Rana Plaza." she said.
