ITV West presenter meets crew of Burnham-On-Sea hovercraft

ITV West news presenter Peter Rowell met crewmembers of Burnham-On-Sea's Light Of Elizabeth hovercraft during his visit to a popular fundraising event near Bridgwater this week.

The familiar face from ITV1's regional news programmes was the special guest at Storgursey's annual It's A Knockout event, which raises money for local charities.

BARB, the charity that operates Burnham's life-saving hovercrafts, was one of the local charities chosen to benefit from this year's event.

"Peter talked to several of our crew and was very interested to hear about a busy summer of rescues along the Somerset coastline," said BARB's Dave Bailey.

Stogursey's It's a Knockout was formed nine years ago and has raised almost £40,000 for local charities. The event sees competitors taking part in a series of fun challenges and activities, similar to the classic TV show.
