Ten Tors trek abandoned

Nice and sunny now maybe but there was a lot of rain earlier and in view of the weather forecast the army decided to abandon this year's 'Ten Tors' challenge last night.

This must have been incredibly disappointing for the 2400 yougsters participating in this two day Dartmoor challenge. It seems that it was the potential problems crossing the very swollen rivers that caused the army to make their decision. This is the lottery of the British weather isn't it. We are now having a wet May after one of the driest Aprils on record.
