Recording the weather on Britain's highest peak

Meteorological recordings resume on the summit of the UK's highest peak after a 113 year break. Between 1883 and 1904 a team of scientists were stationed on the mountain's summit, but only now is their work being resumed after researchers installed a remote weather station. It's hoped the new data will contribute to future climate change research. The BBC's Gareth Barlow has more.
