Barbados to declare itself a republic

Now Barbados, the former British colony, is on the eve of taking a momentous step.

At midnight tomorrow it will remove the Queen as its head of state and declare itself a republic.

The country became independent in 1966 and this is seen as the final step in cutting ties with its colonial past.

Ayshah Tull is in the capital Bridgetown.
