Rowing solo across the Atlantic aged 60

Shirley Thompson is hoping to become the oldest woman to row solo across an ocean.

Remarkably, the 60-year-old, who is originally from Belfast, had never rowed before this year.

She plans to leave from the Canary Islands in November and aims to arrive 3,000 miles away in the Caribbean three months later.
