A host of cricket stars are due to embark on a 441-mile charity bike ride from Durham to Lord's today.

Riders will set off from Emirates ICG this morning and take in a number of England's cricket grounds during their five-day journey, including Chester-le-Street, Headingley, Old Trafford and Trent Bridge.

They're aiming to raise £200,000 for the Tom Maynard Trust and PCA Benevolent Fund.
