New Mills ice climber Andy Turner will be sharing his experiences of the Sochi Winter Olympics with students at the University of Derby Buxton when he returns from Russia this week.

Andy, of Church Road, was one two Britons chosen to go to the 2014 games to demonstrate why his exciting discipline should be recognised as an official Olympic event.

The 43-year-old, who has been climbing for 17 years, works with the team at the University’s Oaklands Manor outdoor centre, on Manchester Road.
