Disabled soldiers' North Pole challenge


A team of servicemen is planning to raise £1m for those wounded in action, by becoming the first group of amputees to trek unaided to the North Pole.

Prince Harry, royal patron of the Walking with the Wounded charity organising the challenge, has said he would like to join them for part of the trek.

Frank Gardner reports.
