Former soldier Ed Stafford completes 4,000-mile Amazon trek

A Leicestershire man has completed a 4,000-mile (6,400 km) trek along the length of the Amazon.

Former soldier Ed Stafford dodged vipers, electric eels, and was wrongly accused of murder during his epic journey, which began in April 2008.

The 34-year-old, of Mowsley, walked from Peru to the coast of Brazil.
