Illegal migrants aid hurricane clear-up in US

Reconstruction a year on from hurricane Sandy being aided by hidden group of workers.

    It's been a year since Hurricane Sandy battered the east coast of the US. Homeowners, businesses and volunteers have worked hard to rebuild communities since.

    But there is a hidden group of workers who have been behind a large part of the clean-up. They are undocumented immigrants.
