Polar bear survivors prepare to fly home

The British Schools Exploring Society has announced it is ending its arctic expedition, after a polar bear mauled to death a teenage student.

Arrangements are being made to bring home the four people who were injured when the animal attacked their camp. The family of the boy who died, Horatio Chapple, have described him as "strong, fearless and kind".

Isabel Webster reports.
