GP on top of the world
Dr Alistair Sutcliffe has overcome the highest hurdle in his quest to scale the world's major peaks after successfully climbing Mount Everest.
Dr Sutcliffe, a GP in Whitby, North Yorkshire, is aiming to join a select band of around 100 people who have climbed the highest mountain in each of the seven continents.
He reached the 29,035ft summit of Everest after a two-month climb, raising £5,000 for the local St Catherine's hospice in the process. Dr Sutcliffe said he felt 'humbled beyond belief' to stand atop the world's tallest mountain.
