Man films Nepal plane 'crash'


A climber from Beverley, East Yorkshire says he is lucky to be alive after he was involved in a plane crash in the Himalayas.

Steve Bampton filmed the moment on his mobile phone when a wheel came off the light aircraft he and a friend were travelling in.

They had just completed the trek to Everest base camp when they were taking off from a remote mountain airstrip.

Matt Richards reports.
