SCOUTS from across the county descended on the Mepal Outdoor Centre for a 24-hour outdoor challenge last month.

More than 200 scouts took part in archery, shooting, climbing, sailing and raft-building over the weekend, which saw teams of four take part in seven of the activities on offer over a 24-hour period.

Chris Ward, of Cambridgeshire scouts, said: "The scouts are proud of their achievements during the weekend - 24 hours in Mepal was a real adventure and a good test of teamwork.
