Prince Harry joins disabled North Pole bid team

Prince Harry has joined a group of disabled servicemen ahead of their attempt to walk unassisted to the North Pole.

The prince, who is patron of the charity Walking With The Wounded, will accompany the men on the first five days of what is expected to be a four-week mission, a challenging 200-mile (320km) trek across the polar ice cap. The group hopes to raise £2m from the trek to help injured servicemen.

Prince Harry joined the group in Svalbard, Norway, where they have been training and acclimatising to temperatures below -20C.
