Team won't see homes for year and a half

Five men from Teesside are cycling round the world to raise money for charity.

The best friends all live near Stockton and have just graduated from university in Newcastle and set off from Yarm this morning.

It will take a year and a half for them to complete their route through Europe, Asia, Australia and America.

The team, who have called themselves Mission Oz and want to raise thousands for Health Poverty Action and Macmillan Cancer support at Middlesbrough's James Cook university hospital.
