Everest weather strands visitors

At least 1,000 people are stranded in the foothills of Mount Everest because bad weather has stopped flights in and out of the area.

Hotels in the area are overflowing with trekkers, tourists and Nepalese guides after four days of poor weather, and supplies are starting to run low.

Andrea Nicolas reports.
