A Worksop man who was told he needed a wheelchair due to a serious leg injury has defied his doctors by cycling over 1,707 miles for charity since 2011.

Scott Stretton, 45, of Kilton Road, injured his leg during a battle training programme and was told by doctors he would either need a wheelchair or a serious operation to get around.

He has since gone on to prove them wrong by cycling 1,707 miles over three years, raising money for charities such as Help For Heroes, the Red Cross and St John’s.
