They are part of the British Transglobe Expedition which is in serious danger of being forced back just a short distance from the North Pole, because of a fire in it's support base at Alert Base, Northern Canada. Leader Sir Ranulph, and Burton are now stranded in temperatures of minus 40c without transport, 450 miles from the Pole with just a weeks supply of food and water.
