UK team set out for Captain Scott Antarctic trek


It is 100 years since Captain Robert Falcon Scott made his ill-fated expedition to the south pole.

Now a British team, including three soldiers wounded on active service, are marking the centenary with their own Antarctic expedition.

The team will set out on Monday and trek to the south pole with an aim to raise over £1m for the Walking With The Wounded charity.

The team leader, Justin Packshaw, a former Captain in the Royal Dragoon Guards and former Olympic rower Sir Matthew Pinsent told the BBC about their preparations for the journey.
