Full report: Course for children of fallen soldiers

A group of children from all over the UK have come together at an outward bound centre in the Lake District.

But what makes this holiday special is they all have one thing in common - each has lost a parent who was serving in the armed forces.

The charity, the Forces Children's Trust, has been set up to help those who are often overlooked when there are casualties and bereavements - the children of those who have died.

Andy Burn reports.
