Amputee veterans complete Atlantic challenge

Four wounded military veterans have set a new world record after becoming the first all-amputee group to row across an ocean.

The team, called Row2Recovery, arrived in Antigua's English Harbour at around 4pm GMT following a gruelling 3,000 mile journey across the Atlantic in just a rowing boat to raise awareness of life beyond injury for injured servicemen and women.

Prince Harry congratulated the team on their "incredible achievement" via video call.
