A DISLOCATED knee-cap did not stop Tom Wilson completing the Three Peaks Challenge.

Tom was part of the Royston Three Peaks team, who undertook the challenge of climbing Britain's three highest mountains - Ben Nevis, Scafell Pike, and Snowdon - to raise funds for Cancer Research UK.

He said: "The knee gave way when we were descending the second mountain, Scafell Pike. I just put my foot down a bit awkwardly and felt it go."

Undeterred, Tom continued to the foot of the mountain, and after a spot of first aid was able to complete the final leg of the journey at Snowdon.

The 10-man team, all regulars at the North Star pub in Royston, hope to raise more than £4,000.

Spokesman Carlo Zambonini said: "Conditions on Scafell Pike and Ben Nevis were atrocious, with thick mist, rain, and hail hindering our progress.

"But when we reached the summit of Snowdon, we were rewarded with some spectacular views."
