Cricket fan walks in memory of Basil D'Oliveira
A blind cricket fan has embarked on a four-day charity walk - from Worcester to south Wales - in memory of cricket legend Basil D'Oliveira.
Mark Ashbourne, from Stourbridge, rarely misses a Worcestershire game. He has set off from Worcester for Cardiff - in time for his team's match against Glamorgan at the weekend.
He hopes to raise funds for a foundation set up to honour D'Oliveira, who died in 2011.
Dan Pallett spoke to Mr Ashbourne and Ryan D'Oliveira, Basil's grandson.
