Woman plans to fly with migrating swans to Arctic

A London conservationist is planning to fly a para-motor to the Arctic in an effort to learn more about the migratory habits of Bewick's swans.

Sacha Dench's journey will take her through 11 countries as she navigates her way north.

And, given the remoteness of the landscape, she will be travelling without the support of a ground crew.

Her aim is to shed light on why the number of swans has halved over the past 20 years.
