A twelve year old boy has cycled six hundred miles to help safeguard Bude Seapool.

Samuel Jennings is doing John O'Groats to Land's End for three charities... including Daniel's Heroes.

It was set up after family friends lost their nine week old baby to a rare spinal condition.

Samuel cannot believe he has already raised over ten thousand pounds: "I got into cycling when I watched Bradley Wiggins win the Tour de France and then a neighbour cycled from John O'Groats to Lands end and last year I did a leg of it so this year I'm doing the whole thing.

"It's been quite amazing going through Scotland and the Lake District. There was one massive hill at Kirkstone pass which was quite challenging for about a mile - but I kept going."
