A 22 year-old man from Somerset has become the first person to travel around the world on a unicycle.

Ed Pratt set off from his home in Curry Rival near Taunton three years ago. His challenge saw him unicycle through Europe, Turkey, Georgia, Azerbaijan, and Kazakhstan before travelling across China and through South East Asia to Singapore. He then tackled Australia and New Zealand before moving on to the USA, finally flying from New York to Edinburgh to begin his final leg home to Somerset.

It has been an epic 21,000 mile journey all in aid of the charity School in a Bag.
