More than a dozen volunteer life-savers have embarked upon a gruelling walk around the Norfolk coast.

Thirteen ladies from the Norfolk Accident and Rescue Service (NARS) are currently in the middle of an 83-mile trek from Hunstanton to Hopton-on-Sea, in a bid to raise funds for the organisation.

They began their quest at 6am on Friday, and will walk for around 12 hours each day until Sunday evening, while carrying 60kg of life-saving equipment between them, including oxygen cylinders, airway pods, masks, a blood glucose kit and all the day-to-day supplies used.

The organisation receives no government funding and has been providing support to the ambulance service in Norfolk since 1970.

A target of £3,000 has been set to help NARS to continue their vital work in the county.
