Isle of Wight's Natasha Lambert completes solo sail
An Isle of Wight teenager with cerebral palsy has completed a solo journey across the channel.
Natasha Lambert, 16, was born with atheroid cerebral palsy which affects her limbs and speech.
Her 21ft-long (6.4m) boat, Miss Isle Too, has been adapted by her father, Gary, and allows her to steer by sucking and blowing into a tube.
Natasha began her voyage in Boulogne, France at 08:00 BST and arrived at Dover at about midday.
