A 21-year-old Briton has become the youngest woman to row solo across the Atlantic Ocean.

Jasmine Harrison, from Thirsk in North Yorkshire, rowed 3,000 miles from the Canary Islands to Antigua as part of the Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge.

She finished her journey on Saturday after 70 days, three hours and 48 minutes. The feat also made her the youngest female to row solo across any of the world's oceans.
