Diss: Local Serviceman Could Be First Double Amputee To Reach South Pole

A serviceman from Diss is close to becoming the first double amputee to reach the South Pole.

Duncan Slater lost both his legs in an explosion in Afganistan.

He's walking alongside Prince Harry in the "Walking With The Wounded" 200-mile charity trek across Antarctica, which began on 14th November.

The trek was originally a race, but now the teams are no longer racing each other due to safety concerns.

With just miles to go before they reach the finish line, Prince Harry says they're hoping to arrive at the South Pole today, Friday the 13th, which he added is "unlucky for some, lucky for us".
