In Brief:


Henry Worsley, the British adventurer died after suffering exhaustion and dehydration while attempting to cross the Antarctic alone. Former army officer Henry Worsley was just 30 miles (48 kilometres) from the end of the almost 1,000-mile (1,600-kilometre) trek when he called for help and was airlifted off the ice.

The 55-year-old Mr. Worsley covered more than 900 miles in 71 days, pulling supplies on a sled, while attempting to complete Ernest Shackleton’s unfinished South Pole expedition of a century ago.
Prince William, patron of the expedition, said he and brother Prince Harry had lost a friend.
