He's best known as the star of Doc Martin and Men Behaving Badly, but today Martin Clunes saddled up for a different challenge.

The actor, who is also president of the British Horse Society, was at Margam Park near Port Talbot to help launch The Great Dragon - a 300 mile stretch from North Wales to South Wales.

The route is aimed at horse-riders, cyclists and walkers, with the hope that it will encourage more people out into the Welsh countryside - as Nicola Hendy reports.
