Kilimanjaro climb in memory of York mountaineer

Former colleagues of a North Yorkshire climber who died during an avalanche in the French Alps are preparing to scale mount Kilimanjaro in his memory.

John Taylor and his friend Stephen Barber - who lived on the same street in Upper Poppleton near York - were among nine people who died following the tragedy in the Mont Blanc range. And as Matt Price reports, John was preparing to take part in this latest charity trek himself.
