Tighter security at Women's Carnival in Germany

​Tens of thousands of people have been out celebrating ​women’s carnival in Germany.

This footage, from Cologne, comes just over a month since assaults on women at New Year’s Eve celebrations, resulting in tighter security for this week’s festivities.

In Cologne alone, traditionally one of carnival’s strongholds, 2,500 police men and women were on duty.
