Adventurer Darren Edwards set for South Pole challenge

We speak to one determined adventurer who despite being paralysed from the chest down because of a spinal cord injury is pushing his body to the limit by trying to break a new polar world record in Antarctica.

Darren Edwards is hoping to become the first disabled person to cross the south pole in a treacherous expedition, that will require physical and mental resilience to complete the 20 day trek.

Tanya went to meet him to learn more about the expedition and his hope to raise £300,000 for a charity to find a cure for spinal cord injuries.
