WALKERS braved the heat in Bridgwater on Friday (May 5) as part of a five-day charity march covering 132 miles.

The Forces March saw participants, who set out from Ilfracombe, pass Bridgwater Town Hall before heading to Westonzoyland en-route to the finish line in Wiltshire.

This year marks the 70th anniversary of the original march which took place in August 1942 by men of the 1st Airborne Division in preparation for D-Day.
