Multiple sclerosis: Ex-rugby player completes one-mile walk

A former rugby player with multiple sclerosis (MS) has completed a one-mile walking challenge 99 days after he started.

Nigel Hughes, who faced New Zealand in 1980 while playing for Newport RFC, started his challenge on 1 May in a bid to raise money for charity.

The ex-policeman was diagnosed with MS in 2012.

In July, Mr Hughes said walking six metres was "physically tougher" than playing against the All Blacks.
