Climber survives 500ft Helvellyn fall

A 27-year-old climber says he feels like the luckiest man to fall down a mountain.

Adam How plunged 500ft (152m) off Helvellyn in the Lake District but survived when he smashed against a rock.

He was winched to safety by rescuers and is now recovering after being treated in hospital for a broken ankle.
