Falklands' hero speaks to war veterans

Falklands hero Simon Weston has visited York University to deliver the keynote speech at the Veterans Mental Health Conference. Mental health experts anticipate a large increase in the number of veterans suffering from anxiety and depression following recent tours to Afghanistan and Iraq.
