Injured servicemen and women on South Pole challenge

Imagine trying walk to the South Pole if you are totally blind or missing a limb.

That is exactly what three teams of injured servicemen and women from around the world are training for, an international race across Antarctica, in aid of Prince Harry's charity, Walking With The Wounded.

The teams, from Britain, the US and the Commonwealth, have been in Iceland getting their first taste of what to expect ahead of the race later this year.

The BBC's Frank Gardner went to meet some of the people taking part.
