British man arrives in T&T after rowing across Atlantic ocean

A British man who broke the world record for rowing across the Atlantic ocean, has arrived in Trinidad and Tobago.

Despite capsizing three times and suffering from a back injury, the Thanet man has set a new Guinness world record for rowing the Atlantic in the fastest time.

Mathew Bennett, from Westgate, completed the challenge in 50 days, 10hrs 36mins, beating the previous time of 52 days and raising more than £120,000 for the NSPCC with four other team members.
