Bike ride in daughter Philippa Corbin's memory

A family from east Devon and their friends are preparing to cycle 800 miles (1,287km) to a food festival in Turin to raise awareness about depression.

Philippa Corbin, 27, killed herself in January 2011 after suffering from depression.

Her parents Hugh and Pam Corbin say they believe treatment and support for mental illness is "weak" at GP level.

On 13 October, 28 cyclists will set off from Axminster on the Slow Ride to Turin to reach the food festival, Salone del Gusto, by 25 October.
