Cerebral palsy girl's Isle of Wight sail

A 15-year-old girl with cerebral palsy has sailed solo round the Isle of Wight raising more than £8,000 for charity.

Natasha Lambert, from Cowes, has athertoid cerebral palsy which affects all of her limbs and speech.

Her 21ft-long (6.4m) boat, Miss Isle Too, was adapted by her father, Gary, and allows her to steer by sucking and blowing into a tube.

Natasha completed the 50-mile (80km) course on Sunday in 12 hours and 30 minutes.
