First Everest climb remembered

The sons of Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay - the first men to conquer Everest - have followed in their fathers' footsteps 60 years later.

Celebrations have been held to mark the 60th anniversary of the first climb to the summit of Mount Everest.

Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay completed the expedition to the world's highest peak in 1953.

The historic feat has since inspired many climbers to follow suit - including the men's sons, as Robert Hall reports.
