A Welsh prepper: 'Crazy' not to prepare for disasters

For British survivalists - or "preppers" - the chance a catastrophe could turn civilization to chaos is too much not to ignore. But what drives someone to plan for doomsday?

Victor Gentles, 60, of Penarth, Vale of Glamorgan, runs YouTube channel called "Welsh Prepper", showing off skills needed to survive after a disaster.

He has stock-piled food, plotted hideouts in the woods and taught himself some bush craft.

He told BBC News it is "crazy not to prepare".
