Sir Ian Botham is marking the 25th anniversary of his famous John O'Groats to Land's End walk, by embarking on another charity trek.

The cricket hero will be walking through ten towns in ten days on Beefy's Great Forget-Me-Not Walk.

Ian Botham is president of the charity, Leukaemia and Lymphoma Research, which is also marking its 50th anniversary.

He has raised £12m for the cause over the years.

He walked through Bristol on Tuesday, 13 April and BBC Points West's Fiona Lamdin tried to keep up with him.
