A survivor of a deadly polar bear attack on a schools expedition in Norway has told an inquest he felt safe in the camp before the creature mauled him and his fellow explorers.
Patrick Flinders said the group received training on the use of trip wires on a briefing weekend before the trip with the British Schools Exploring Society "and a couple of days when we were out there".
However, he told the hearing he wasn't involved in the setting up of the system and said he also never had a discussion about a bear watch.
Mr Flinders says he also did some practice shooting with a rifle - shooting four rounds.
