Balding on 'extraordinary' McCain

Clare Balding gives her thoughts on the passing of Donald 'Ginger' McCain, who has died aged 80 after suffering from cancer.

McCain trained the legendary Grand National winner Red Rum, who attained three wins and two second places in a five-year period during the 1970s.

Balding says the horse "brought back the magic" to the race, while McCain was an "extraordinary character".
