Banks in Cyprus have just re-opened for the first time in two weeks, although tough restrictions are limiting how much cash customers can withdraw and what they can do with that money.

The BBC’s Rob Young in Nicosia, Cyprus joins Marketplace Morning Report host Jeremy Hobson to share the mood on the streets of the capital city as customers line up outside the nation’s banks.
