A SCOUT is celebrating victory in a competition held during an international expedition.

Jonathan Petch, of the Ravensdale Explorer Unit at Darlington Scout HQ, won a £75 voucher for Simpson's Sports Shop.

He won the prize after taking part in river rafting, rock climbing, and backpacking during Darlington and District Scout Council's summer expedition to Kandersteg, in Switzerland. The contest looked for the youngster who performed best in several areas, including looking after themselves and being helpful.
