I would walk 5000 miles

A man who is walking 5000 miles through the UK to raise money for charity is in the borders this weekend.

Colm Farrell, who is known as 'the Hazard', has taken on the challenge to support the suicide prevention charity Console.

Colm, who comes from County Galway in Ireland, carries a tent for emergencies but relies on the goodwill of people he meets on his journey for accommodation.

He started his walk in the very north of Scotland in July and he has only needed to stay in his tent once.

He will reach Peebles this afternoon, but his whole journey is expected to take eleven months to complete.
