Memorial to Sussex student, missing in Australia

The family of a student from Forest Row in Sussex - who went missing in Australia almost six months ago - are now raising funds to build a skatepark in his town as a memorial.

Hugo Palmer and his friend Erwan Ferrieux were backpacking just north of Sydney when their families lost contact with them. The authorities think they may have drowned. Jenna Verdicchio has this report.
