Wounded ex-servicemen scale Snowdon to light beacon

A group of injured former servicemen are scaling Snowdon this evening, to light a Diamond Jubilee beacon at its summit.

Captain David Wiseman, part of the Walking With The Wounded team, told us it would be a "huge honour" to take part. It's hoped 2,012 flames will be ignited in sequence around the UK between 10 and 10.30pm.
