Champion lumberjack shows off speed chopping skills

Spike Milton isn't an ordinary lumberjack... he is one of Britain's most experienced lumberjack sports competitors.

A former professional forester, his career started 16 years ago and he has competed in America, Canada, New Zealand and across Europe.

The reigning Supreme British Champion will be competing at the BBC Countryfile Live show at Blenheim Palace at the weekend.

He demonstrated one of the key tests for any competitive lumberjack - the Standing Block Chop - at BBC Oxford.
