A fitness enthusiast from Teesside is celebrating after qualifying as a 'Nordic Walking' instructor at the age of 71.
Dave Scott took up the practice three years ago and now leads classes in Hartlepool. He studied anatomy and physiology for four months to gain the qualification. 'Nordic Walking' originated in Finland in the 1930s as a way to exercise the upper body whilst walking.
