A Chelmorton target shooter has won a national competition despite having cancer in his shooting eye.

Rick Ardern triumphed at the UKAHFT English Open in Worcester last Sunday, after undergoing major surgery to treat tumours in his right eye last year.

The 40-year-old, who still suffers from occasional blurred vision and aching, beat 59 other competitors on the day, scoring 56 and securing his first national title.
