Berkshire veteran takes on 400km-Oman desert walk

A former soldier is preparing to set off on a three-week trek across 400km of the Omani desert.

Dave Adams, from Arborfield in Berkshire, spent 13 years keeping the Army's Lynx helicopters in the air and experienced post-traumatic stress disorder after serving in Afghanistan.

Now he's been chosen to be part of a six-strong team undertaking a 21-day expedition in support of the veterans' charity that helped him, Walking With The Wounded.
