Four hero ex-servicemen including a Royal Marine and a submariner have become the first amputees to swim the Channel.
Conrad Thorpe, Jamie Gillespie, Stephen White and Craig Howorth, who have all lost part of their legs, completed the 21-mile crossing in an impressive 12 hours 14 minutes.
None of the four wore a prosthetic for the swim which made them the first-ever amputees to swim from Dover to Cap Griz Nez near Calais.
Their achievement has been officially recognised by the Channel Swimming Association.
