Holocaust hero

The Czech Republic's highest state honor has been given to the great and the good for decades, and on Tuesday it was bestowed on a very special person. In 1939 a British stockbroker called Nicholas Winton organized a series of trains across Europe to take Jewish refugee children from Prague to safety. Now, at the age of 105, he's been honored at a special ceremony in Prague. Rob Cameron reports.
