News from a thread on the Outdoors Magic site …….. in case you hadn’t already spotted it.

”Travelling from the Lyke Wake Walk to the Yorkshire 3 Peaks last night, Steve and his support driver Don were involved a car crash outside Skipton. Non of their injuries are serious but the 10x10 challenge is over. They'll be more info soon”
