Animal rights activists in Mexico protest return of bullfighting

In Mexico City, animal rights activists are protesting against the return of bullfighting, years after it was outlawed.

The Mexican Supreme Court repealed its decision last month, citing a lack of sufficient reasoning to ban the events.

Mexican correspondent Alisdair Baverstock says locals would rather leave the sport to Spain's colonial history, but some businesses do still rely on the cultural practice.

Baverstock spoke to Ingrid Hipkiss.
