A disabled man from St Neots plans to become the first to travel across Europe's largest glacier and all on a snow kite.

Sean Rose and his team are heading out Iceland to compete in the challenge in April.

Sean, who lives in St Neots broke his back in a skiing accident 13 years ago, since then he's become a World Champion Water Skier, Winter X-Games medalist and double Paralympian.

This latest challenge is to raise money for Wings for Life who's mission is to find a cure for spinal cord injuries.
