Help for Heroes cyclists set off from Paris

Hundreds of cyclists, including many injured servicemen, have set off from Paris on a bike ride to London to raise money for the charity Help for Heroes.

The annual three hundred and fifty mile journey is expected to take six days to complete.

The ride was also an opportunity to pay tribute to soldier Lee Rigby, who was murdered in Woolwich last week.

From Paris, Maddy Savage reports.
