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.
