Ex-servicemen rowing team back on course

A team of six former servicemen are back on course to cross the Atlantic in the world's toughest rowing race.

For the past fortnight they have been stranded without a water purifier, and the boat's steering had also broken.

But on Sunday a support vessel came to their rescue - and now with fresh water supplies and a repaired boat, they are once more on course for Barbados.

Adam Parsons reports.
