Morning weather and travel: mist descends on parts of Hampshire

Have your say

TWO teams from Portsmouth specialist recruitment firm STR Group will be tackling the open sea to raise money for charity.

They will be rowing the English Channel in September, hoping to raise more than £10,000 for Naomi House children’s hospice.

Some have never set foot in a gig before, and they will take between five and nine hours to row the 22 miles between Dover and Calais. The firm’s chief executive, Richard Crawley, said staff are excited about the challenge.
