A man is attempting to walk across the Irish Sea - in a human hamster wheel.

Chris Todd, 35, will zig-zag 66 miles across open water for two days non-stop.

He will power his metal wheel - which he calls a Tredalo - by walking on wire mesh, with two floats either side to act as stabilisers.

Chris hopes to raise 20,000 and will split the money between two charities - Royal National Lifeboat Institution and Wiltshire Blind Association.
