The UK’s youngest person to ski the full distance to the south pole has returned to her home in Derbyshire.
Bryony Balen, 21, from Melbourne, reached the landmark on Friday after skiing 705 miles (1,100km) from the coast to the pole.
The Newcastle University student spent 56 days in the Antarctic, a day less than expected, in temperatures as low as -40C (-40F) to complete the trek.
Miss Balen said it was “surreal” to be back home in the UK.
Well done to her for a remarkable achievement.Follow @csabian
