A Norwich dentist swapped tooth work for legwork as he donned his walking boots to raise money for charity.

Dr Gautam Sharma pushed his body to the limit as he walked 17 miles through the Welsh mountains in less than 15 hours to raise money for Nelson's Journey.

The walk had the doctor completing more than 55,000 steps to beat the target time across 10,000ft of mountain range.

Dr Sharma was supported by the team and his patients at West Earlham Dental throughout the challenge.

He said: 'I put my mind and body on the line to do something positive that I have not done before. I would like to thank all the patients and friends of the practice who donated for the cause, which has fantastically raised over £500.'
