An 870-mile charity walk around Wales in aid of our soldiers has set off from the Senedd this afternoon.

The fundraiser has been organised by Walk on Wales - a charity set up by Falklands veterans Captain Jan Koops and LSgt Dai Graham.

The walk aims to raise £1 million for the charities Combat Stress and the Welsh Guards Afghanistan Appeal.

Eleven relay teams will walk the entire length of the Wales Coastal Path carrying a specially commissioned silver baton.

The baton is inscribed with the names of the 50 Welsh Guardsmen who have died serving their country since the end of the Second World War.

A small minority of those taking part will walk the entire 870-mile stretch.
