A 16-year-old boy from Bristol has set a new record by becoming the youngest person to trek to the South Pole.

Lewis Clarke spent 48 days at temperatures as low as -50C (-58F) and winds of up to 120 mph (193 kmh).

He arrived at the Amundsen-Scott South Pole Station at 18:00 GMT on 18 January after completing the gruelling 702-mile journey from the Antarctic coast.
