Three friends are due to arrive back in the UK after circumnavigating the globe in a black cab.

The trip has taken them 450 days and the trio have raised more than £20,000 for charity.

Johno Ellison from Leeds will arrive back in Folkestone this morning, along with his two travelling companions and their 20-year-old K-registered black cab.

They have broken the world record for the longest ever journey by taxi, the first circumnavigation of the globe in a black cab and the world's highest taxi journey (the crew reached Mount Everest's base camp in the cab, which is around 5,300 metres above sea-level).

They have negotiated herds of Armenian sheep, been arrested in Moscow, and were detained by the Iranian Secret Police.
