Ben Nevis Conquered


COURAGEOUS Cor today became the first woman who has lost four limbs to conquer Ben Nevis.

Mum-of-one Cor lost her lower legs and hands to septicaemia in 2013 but her sheer grit and determination has seen her surpass all expectations and achieve far more than the majority of able bodied people.

Although she keeps fit by cycling, pilates, swimming and going to the gym, she was not able to do mountain training because of the damage her artificial limbs would inflict on her legs over rough terrain.

The last 200 metres of the mountain proved the most difficult as she had to deal with the scree at the top but last night she was proudly victorious after a climb lasting more than eight hours.
