People from 4 small villages in Zambia's Copperbelt region claim that their water supply is being contaminated by pollution from a mine set up by the multinational Vedanta and its subsidiary Konkola Copper Mines. But rather than have their case heard in Zambia they have wanted it to take place here in London. A High Court Judge has ruled that their legal claim should be heard in British courts. We talk to Oliver Holland from Leigh Day, the legal firm representing the Zambian villagers. Meanwhile, Russian President Vladamir Putin has started a two day visit to Greeece to try and re-energise relations with one of its closest European allies.
