French pair in pedal-powered sub channel challenge

Two men are to pedal a submarine across the English Channel.

French engineers Antoine Delafargue, 33, and Michael de Lagarde, 36, plan to travel 135 nautical miles (250km) from Plymouth to St Malo on Friday.

The pair, who have designed and built the vessel themselves, told the Plymouth Herald they expected the trip to take seven days.

"It's going to be a very physical challenge", he said.
