Understanding climate change

The Met Office and Exeter University are to form a world class academic partnership to tackle the problems of climate change.

The new partnership will bring together more than one thousand scientists in total - and many of them are from the South West.

Our Environment Correspondent Adrian Campbell's been speaking to Professor David Stephenson from the University of Exeter.
