Identical twins Ross and Hugo Turner are set to battle sub-zero temperatures - and polar bears - when they trek across Greenland this May. The twins, 25, who live in Wandsworth, London, will journey 550km across the polar ice cap in hope of raising £305,000 for Spinal Research, a charity that helped Hugo when he was 17 after an accident in Cornwall left him almost paralysed. In a unique twist, one twin will wear the latest state-of-the-art clothing and kit, while the other will use the same gear as legendary polar explorer Ernest Shackleton did during his 1914 'Endurance' expedition. The trek will begin in Kangerlassauq, on the West Coast of Greenland, taking approximately 30 days to complete before reaching their final destination in Tasiilaq. The twins are both keen to wear the old kit, and so have resolved to flip a coin to decide their fate.
