Olly completes charity challenge

A Manxman has completed a seven kilometre swim across the Solent, while holding onto a Three Legs of Man flag.

Olly Pemberton finished the challenge, which took him from Gosport, Hampshire to Ryde in the Isle of Wight, in under two hours to raise money for the One Foundation charity.

The 24-year-old from Santon has also climbed Mount Kilimanjaro, run the Inca Trail and driven from the Isle of Man to Mongolia, all with the Manx flag.

The Solent challenge was organised as part of the Isle of Wight pop festival.
