Scouts train for North Pole trip

22 July 2013 Last updated at 14:59 BST

Four Scouts from South West England are preparing to ski 120 miles (190km) to the North Pole.

If they succeed, the quartet - from Cornwall and Somerset - will be the first Scouts to set foot there when they make the attempt in 2014.

They are training in Cornwall and in Norway on how to survive in one of the world's most inhospitable environments.
