VIDEO: Replica French warship to sail Atlantic

An exact replica of an 18th Century French frigate has set sail on its maiden voyage – recreating a historic transatlantic journey to America.

The original Hermione ferried General Lafayette to the United States in 1780, where he revealed that France would help America in its revolutionary war against the British.

The reconstruction has taken two decades to complete and about £20m.

Hugh Schofield reports from La Rochelle in Western France.
