Somerset teenagers prepare to beat rowing record

Five teenagers, one as young as 14, are attempting to row the English Channel to raise money for the charity Help For Heroes.

Three of the boys are from Taunton School.

The group is making the attempt at Easter, and trained at sea for the first time on Wednesday.

BBC Points West's Clinton Rogers went down to Plymouth Sound to see how they got on.
