Anti-corruption NGOs are hosting bus tours around Mexico City in an attempt to highlight corruption in private and public sectors.

The sights include an independence monument that went so over-budget that four hospitals could have been built in its place and a mansion owned by the Mexican presidents wife, built by a favoured government contractor.

As Latin America struggles against corruption, an innovative new way of fighting graft in Mexico City has been causing a stir in the capital.

Activists working for NGOs fighting against corruption are organising tours in a bus aptly named Corruptour.

The Corruptour is free and takes tourists and locals around a route which highlights some of the most glaring examples of corruption from the private and public sectors.
