Ben Bellman was a stuntman on films such as Gladiator, Charlotte Grey and James Bond movie 'Die Another Day'. Despite having sky dived for over 1000 times, his career ended after a sky-diving accident in 2001. It was thought that he would not live.
His family were warned that if he did survive, he may never walk or talk again. However Ben has been proving doctors wrong and will travel by train from London to Lockerbie.
In 1999 his first role was riding horseback alongside Russell Crowe in Gladiator.
Being around horses again is something which Ben is looking forward to:
'I’m really looking forward to it”, he said, “I love horses and this is the first time I’ll have had the chance to be with them since my accident'.

Relatives of the only man convicted of the Lockerbie bombing are to make a fresh bid to clear his name. More than two years after his death, they claim to have evidence Abdelbaset Ali al-Megrahi was pressured by ministers to drop an appeal against his conviction. Joe Pike has the details.
The family of Abdelbaset al-Megrahi, along with 24 relatives of Lockerbie bombing victims, have today launched a posthumous appeal against the Libyan's convictions.
It marks the latest step in a protracted legal battle since Megrahi's conviction at a special court in the Netherlands in 2001.
- May 2000: Megrahi and another Libyan, Al Amin Khalifa Fahima, begin trial at a special Scottish court sitting in the Netherlands.
- January 2001: Megrahi convicted of murdering 270 people, Fahima is acquitted.
- January 2002: First appeal, heard in front of five judges, is unsuccessful - Megrahi begins a life sentence in a Glasgow prison.
- June 2007: Scottish Criminal Case Review Commission (SCRCC) sends case to the High Court for appeal, saying Megrahi "may have suffered a miscarriage of justice".
- August 2009: Megrahi released from prison on compassionate grounds after doctors say he will die from cancer within months.
- May 2012: Megrahi dies at home in Tripoli.
- June 2014: Megrahi's family and relatives of victim announce a new appeal is being sent to the SCCRC.
