BBC News - Ukrainian POW chapel marks Christmas

A congregation of Ukrainian Orthodox worshippers at Hallmuir, near Lockerbie, will be celebrating Christmas on 7 January in keeping with the Julian calendar.

The chapel is no ordinary place of worship, having been built by Ukrainian prisoners of war who were held captive during World War Two.

Much of Scotland's Ukrainian population is descended from former soldiers who arrived as prisoners of war and made the country their home.

BBC Scotland's Willie Johnston reports on how they are fighting to keep old traditions alive.
