It's one of the most gruelling endurance races in the world - rowing 3,000 miles in 48 days across the Atlantic. And, today, Prince Harry was in Oxfordshire to praise the crew, including two injured ex-servicemen, for successfully completing the toughest challenge of their lives.

The Prince was in Henley-on-Thames at the home of rowing and the 'Row to Recovery' charity.

The race has been supported by the Endeavour Fund - set up by him - to encourage more wounded veterans to take up the sport. Mel Bloor was at the Royal event.

Interviewees:Cpl Scott Blaney, crew member and Catherine Yoxall from The River and Rowing Museum.
