Five police officers who swapped walking the beat for their walking boots in order to climb Africa's highest mountain say it was an "unbelievable experience".

They've returned to the Island after scaling Mount Kilimanjaro having raised over £4,500 for the local charities Tabitha's Trust and Manx Miracles. 

The trip wasn't without incident - PC Carl Woods suffered altitude sickness before reaching the summit and had to turn back, his team member Kelly Wilkinson told us it was tough. 

Kelly suffered from the effects of the altitude on descent and ended up in hospital - now, having both recovered, Carl explains what the team gained from the experience:
