Two polar explorers have received a personal message from Prince Harry.
Whitley-based firm Land Rover's Ambassador Ben Saunders and Tarka L'Herpiniere have entered the final stage of their 1,800 mile foot journey from Antarctica's coast to the South Pole.
In his blog from Antarctica Ben said:
The journey is expected to take around 110 days, with Ben and Tarka travelling 16 miles (15km) per day with their 200kg worth of supplies. They have so far covered 1,350 miles in 8 days.
The two are burning through a 6,000 calorie diet every day, as their body fat percentage has dropped too low to sufficiently provide them with enough energy.
Ben and Tarka are due to reach the coast early February 2014.
