Rockall endurance challenge for Help for Heroes charity

17 May 2013 Last updated at 07:11 BST

A British man is hoping to set a new world endurance record by living solo for 60 days on a remote island rock, to raise money for charity.

Rockall is a 21m high eroded volcano, lying 260 miles from the Outer Hebrides, in the North Atlantic.

Nick Hancock will stay in a pod on the rock, to protect him from the elements.
