A man from Norfolk who discovered that he had TB is planning to row the distance of the English Channel to raise money for research into the disease.

Simon Richardson had been planning a career in the army but before he was about to sign-up he was told he had Pulmonary TB.

There are more new cases of TB in the UK than HIV, leukaemia or stomach cancer.
