A 16-year-old boy from Bristol has set a new record by becoming the youngest person to trek to the South Pole.

Lewis Clarke spent 48 days at temperatures as low as -50C and winds of up to 120 mph.

He arrived at the Amundsen-Scott South Pole Station at 18:00 GMT after completing the gruelling 702-mile journey from the Antarctic coast.

He will now be submitting evidence to Guinness World Records so his claim can be officially verified.
