Chris ‘Cam’ Cameron and team beaten back after aborted attempt at record stay on remote Atlantic island

A man who cut short an attempt to set a new record for living on Rockall has been unable to recover his survival gear after high waves made it unsafe to do so.

Chris “Cam” Cameron had hoped to stay for up to two months on the island, which is situated 230 miles (370km) west of the Outer Hebrides in the north Atlantic, and raise £50,000 for military charities. In late June, after living there for 30 days, he was forced to call for an emergency evacuation after enduring days of severe weather.
