Organiser: Ten Tors Challenge 'really tough' this year

Really tough conditions this year. When they set off yesterday morning, a lot of rain, very poor visibility. A number of teams got disorientated early on. The rivers have been quite full, we've had to have a lot of safety guidance along the river lines. But there's been some fantastic Samaritan work - teams helping other teams.
