Two young rowers have been rescued after their brave attempt to cross the Atlantic ocean ended in them perilously drifting for almost a week.
Lauren Morton from Wetherby and her rowing partner Hannah Lawton had been at sea for more than three months in one of the world's most gruelling rowing challenges.
When they couldn't go on any longer they called for help from the organisers, but before they reached them they were picked up by a cargo ship and they're now heading for safety.
Rachel Townsend met Lauren's father, Wayne, who was only told of the rescue in the early hours of this morning:
A spy plane from RAF Waddington in Lincolnshire is to carry out reconnaissance flights over Poland and Romania as part of NATO's monitoring of the crisis in neighbouring Ukraine.
The AWAK jet, which has a single pilot, will be part of the NATO monitoring team being deployed in response to the incursion by Russian troops into the Crimea region of Ukraine.
The father of a rower from Wetherby who has spent almost three months battling storms in the Atlantic Ocean has said how proud he is of her, following her rescue.
Lauren Morton and her partner Hannah Lawton were taking part in the 3,000 mile Atlantic rowing Challenge. The pair have endured numerous storms and Lauren suffered a head injury.
They have now been picked up by a Belgian cargo ship and will reach dry land in 12 days time. Lauren's father Wayne spoke of his pride for his daughter:
