Two men from Mersea Island in Essex look set to scoop a £100,000 prize for a record breaking row around the British Isles.

Josh Taylor and Alan Morgan are part of a four man team called the Islanders.

They are due to row under Tower Bridge in London today and look likely to beat the previous round Britain record of 26 days 21 hours and 14 minutes by about 12 hours.
