Six soldiers are taking part in a marathon 250-mile open water swim in order to raise funds for injured servicemen. They're taking it in turns to swim, round the clock, in a six-day relay at Shepperton Lake in Surrey.
One swimmer, Trooper Clifford O'Farrell, was himself severely injured in Afghanistan and is swimming as part of his rehabilitation.
