Former soldier speaks of joy at end of 8000-mile trek

A former soldier says he "cried" at seeing Blackpool Tower at the end of a 8000-mile trek around the UK coast.

Christian Nock started his journey from the resort in August 2012. His walk has raised £200,000 for the charity Help for Heroes.

The ex-serviceman slept rough on every stage of his journey, to raise awareness of the plight of homeless war veterans.
