RNLI warning to Respect the Water during ‘deadliest’ month at the south west coast
Plymouth Amputee Helps War Heroes
A Plymouth man who became the first triple amputee from the war in Afghanistan is battling to make the lives of other affected service personnel better.
Mark Ormrod lost both legs and an arm almost 4 years ago when he stood on a landmine.
He tells Heart you need the most help once you've left the services.
He's now organising a week long charity 'swimathon' starting Sunday 21st August at Endsleigh Garden centre at Ivybridge.

All the money raised will go to the Royal Marines Association.
Speaking about his personel experiences since leaving the services Mark says it's important for people to dig deep to support individuals and families have a better future.
This challenge won't take place in a normal swimming pool but in a Riptide Neptune Exercise pool which is only 14 foot long.
