War veteran Gordon Short's 100th birthday bowls challenge has had to be put on hold after he was hurt in a fall.

The centenarian was tasked with bowling 100 'ends' at several clubs throughout the county, including a slot in Torquay, to raise money for the Devon Air Ambulance

But all is not lost - he has returned home after a short spell in hospital and is still aiming to do the challenge

In fact , his family have told clubs Gordon is talking about maybe having to bowl from a wheel chair!
