Video reveals last moments of Himalayan climbers

Indian authorities have released a video showing the final moments of a team of climbers whose bodies were recovered in the Himalayas.

The clip shows four Britons, two Americans, an Australian and an Indian slowly making their way up an unnamed peak in sunny weather, officials said.

The group was attempting to climb India's second-highest peak Nanda Devi when contact was lost on 26 May.

Seven bodies have been recovered, but Tyneside-born Martin Moran's remains have not yet been found.

Indian sources say a helicopter crew searching for the other eight climbers has spotted five bodies, after the mountain was believed to have been hit by multiple avalanches.
