The Race2Recovery team say they are going through their final checks before setting off on the Dakar Rally in a few hours time.

Captain Tony Harris said: "Having been part of Race2Recovery right from the beginning and having put in so much work, along with the rest of the team, it feels surreal to finally be in Lima and be hours away from revving up on the start line."
