Blind Iraq veteran takes on 1000 mile charity cycle

A former soldier's been given a hero's welcome in Liverpool during a fundraising challenge.

Craig Lundberg from Liverpool was blinded when he was hit by a grenade in Iraq in 2007. He's already climbed Kilimanjaro, learned to fly and starred in a movie to raise money for wounded soldiers.

Now Craig's cycling one thousand miles from Land's End to John O'Groats.

Craig and his sighted pilot Callum Edge were cheered on in Liverpool today

The Blind Tandem Challenge is raising money for Blind Veterans UK and Vision Aid Overseas.
