Car challenge: Cape Town to London in 10 days!

London to Cape Town is a journey that a lot of sun seekers usually make this time of year and who can blame them!! Flights usually take about 12 hours!

But for two adventurers from Sussex - travelling back from South Africa by plane is all too easy.

Phil Young and Paul Brace are planning to take on the ultimate driving challenge. They plan to drive ten thousand miles from Sunny Cape Town to London in just 10 days - in a Fiat Panda.

Fred Dinenage caught up with the duo and their little runaround in the snow, outside ITV News Meridian's studios.
