Antarctic charity trek in honour of dead adventurer

A team of army reservists has completed a 1,100 mile (1,770km) trek across the Antarctic in honour of an adventurer who died making the journey.

The six men from Birmingham and Hereford, known as Spear 17, say they are the first military group to complete the crossing on skis.

Henry Worsley, a former British Army officer, died in January 2016 attempting to become the first person to carry out the expedition unsupported.

The team reached the centre of the south pole in 68 days, raising cash for a military charity.
