A former Gurkha soldier from Canterbury, who lost both legs while serving in Afghanistan, has vowed to fight to change the rules that are stopping him from becoming the first double amputee to climb Mount Everest.

The Nepalese government decided last month that anyone who's lost both their legs will not be allowed to climb the world's tallest mountain.

Hari Budha Magar thinks the Nepalese government is wrong.

Hari now hopes to persuade the Nepalese government to change its mind. Abigail Bracken's report includes footage courtesy of Shanta Nepali.
