Naked challenge for tough mums

It's one of the toughest challenges in the world, so tough in fact that fewer people have taken on the Talisker Whisky Challenge - that's rowing across the Atlantic - than have climbed Everest or been in space.

Barnsley man stuck in Thailand without travel insurance

A Barnsley man trapped in Thailand after being virtually paralysed by a rare condition has told Calendar he didn't realise he wasn't covered by travel insurance.

Speaking from intensive care at a hospital in Bangkok, Craig Lindley, seen here with his brother Karl, says he applied for insurance online, but has since discovered the transaction failed.

Family and friends have rallied round to pay for his treatment and flight home next week, with costs now spiralling to more than £80,000.
