Double amputee creating Generation R

A former Gurkha soldier from Canterbury who lost his legs when a roadside bomb exploded in Afghanistan has been talking to schoolchildren about how he coped with the most difficult time of his life.

Since becoming a double amputee Hari Budha Magar has tried every paralympic sport and plans to climb Mount Everest.

In a series of talks called Generation R he has been talking to school pupils about - Resilience.

The scheme is run by the charities Drive - and Blesma - which has been working with people who have lost limbs in combat - since the first world war.

Sarah Saunders went along to the talk at Rainham Mark Grammar School.
