Can you help Long Straight Walker?

High seas have caused a problem for a charity fundraiser as he attempts to leave the island.

John MacPhee, who suffers from Parkinsons Disease, is trying to continue his epic walk from Land’s End to John O’Groats.

But the next leg of his journey has been put on hold after waves on the Solway Firth forced him to turn back this afternoon.

He’s now stuck in Peel with his television crew waiting for him in Kirkcudbright.

John says time is of the essence.

If you can help John, his number is 07967 100 593.
