Two men rowing across the Atlantic ocean for charity are expected to arrive on the Isles of Scilly today.

Since departing New York on 7th June, Chris Waters from Taunton and Elliott Dale from Lyme Regis have been rowing in two-hour shifts through the nights and sharing the duties hourly during the day. They've had to overcome injuries, huge cargo ships and severe weather conditions.

Plymouth diver Daley sets his sights on Rio 2016

Tom Daley has successfully defended his Commonwealth Games title in the 10 metre platform.

The Plymouth diver dominated last night's final, finishing 82 points ahead of his nearest rival to take the gold medal.

His best was his penultimate dive - the back 3.5 somersault. A stunning effort which recorded a score of 102.6 points from the judges - the highest of the competition.

The 20-year-old is now setting his sights on the Rio Olympics in 2016, where he hopes to win gold after scooping bronze in London:

Devon's Jo Pavey has won a bronze medal after a battling display in the women's 5,000 metres.

The 40-year-old was leading at the bell, but was overtaken by three Kenyans. However, Pavey found the strength to power past Margaret Muriuki and almost caught silver medallist Janet Kisa.

It's her first medal at the Games since taking silver in the same competition in Melbourne in 2006.
