A team of injured soldiers are making the final preparations before they attempt to become the first disabled team to complete the Dakar Rally.

The Race2Recovery team includes six British soldiers who lost limbs or suffered serious injury in Iraq or Afghanistan.

The 28 strong team will drive some 5,600 miles across three countries as they try to raise funds for Help for Heroes.
