'I'll climb again despite 1,000ft fall'

A climber who survived a 1,000ft (305m) fall from a mountain peak says he is planning to return to the hills soon.

Adam Potter, 36, from Glasgow, plummeted down the near-vertical eastern slope of Sgurr Choinnich Mor near Ben Nevis after losing his footing.

He was later airlifted to hospital by helicopter but was found to have suffered only minor injuries.
