Over the top - fundraisers abseil down Brighton's Grand Hotel for blind ex-services charity

More than one hundred volunteers abseiled down one of Brighton's most iconic buildings. They were raising money for the charity Blind Veterans UK which helps ex-servicemen and women.

Malcolm Shaw went to the Grand Hotel to see the abseilers in action, and spoke to Cara Butler, the youngest to take part, blind veteran Martin Shail, and Lesley Garven of Blind Veterans UK.
