Snow-stranded school trip students return home

A group of students from Wolverhampton who were stranded in Scotland for more than three days because of the extreme snow have described how they had to huddle together to keep warm.

The sixth formers from St Edmunds Catholic School and St Peter's Collegiate School were due back from their Geography field trip to the Isle of Arran on Friday. But then ferries to the mainland were cancelled, and they were stuck without heat and power. Chris Halpin reports.
