A man walking 1,000 miles in just his speedos, goggles and swimming hat has arrived in Cornwall.

Setting off in early December, Speedo Mick has spent the last seven week on a mission from John O Groats to Land's End.

His aim is to raise £250,000 to start up new community projects for disadvantaged young people.

And all while battling Storm Ciara and Storm Dennis is just his undies... brrr!

He has now crossed in the final county of his journey, the Duchy, as he heads for his finish line.

You can follow his journey on Twitter here.

"We are fundraising for community projects for disadvantaged young people, creating opportunities to bring people together to overcome isolation and experience positive attention and affirmation and to hopefully broaden their horizons . 

"A third of children our living in poverty in our area after decade of austerity has stripped away many of our vital services and safety nets that help stop vulnerable people falling through those safety nets. The measure of a civilised society and caring society is how we treat and care for the most vulnerable in that society.

"In response to the issues that leave people isolated and hopeless, we want to respond with community projects that bring people together so that they may draw from each other’s strengths.

"We would like to help build a more inclusive community where everyone is welcome respected and supported.

"Please join us in trying to make a difference wether it be big or small."

Go Fund Me, Michael Cullen
