A disabled oarsman has rowed into the record books, becoming the first person with cerebral palsy to cross the Atlantic unaided.

Stuart Boreham, from Long Compton, Warwickshire, arrived in Port St Charles, Barbados, yesterday afternoon after spending four months at sea.

He crossed the finishing line off the islandís north coast shortly before midnight on Wednesday and spent the night moored offshore.
