A bid to bike round the world on a tandem in record time has been launched at Canterbury Cathedral.

George Agate and John Whybrow were given a rousing send off at the cathedral gate.

The duo hope to raise £100,000 for three charities including Porchlight, which helps people from across Kent who are facing homelessness.

ITV Meridian spoke to the pair.
