A PE teacher at a South Derbyhire school is taking part in a mammoth charity challenge this weekend.

Ian Clarkson (pictured), who works at Foremarke Hall, Repton Preparatory School, will be taking part in the effort that is looking to set a Guinness World Record by competing in five football matches in five different countries in just 48 hours.
