Former soldier Ben Parkinson has set off on his latest challenge that'll take him to France to honour D-Day heroes.

Ben, from Doncaster, will be cycling to Pegasus Bridge that was captured by airborne forces in 1944 and played a critical role in making the Normandy landings a success.

Ben, who was severely wounded in Afghanistan, was joined by other injured servicemen for the ride, which itself is training for a much bigger challenge later this year as Martin Fisher found out.
