Video - Makoko Nigeria's thriving slum

Makoko in Nigeria is one of the more unusual slums in all of Africa.

It’s built on water, which provides a way of life for the fishing community - but also risks spreading disease because of the cramped population.

At least 200,000 people live here and after more than a century of non-inteference, local officials recently took a keen interest in the slum.
