Warm welcome for skiers at Special Olympics

A group of skiers from the South have been proving that disability is not a barrier to sport, by taking part in a national skiing competition in the French Alps.

It's run by the Special Olympics for athletes with Down's Syndrome, autism and many other types of learning disabilities.

This week, they've pulled on their skis and have been racing each other down the slopes, after being given a warm welcome at the ski resort of Serre Chevalier. Our reporter Lauren Hall went with them.
