Ian Botham walks for tsunami relief in Sri Lanka

Veteran England cricketer Sir Ian Botham is halfway through an eight-day charity walk to raise funds for communities affected by the civil war and the 2004 tsunami in Sri Lanka.

He has walked for good causes since 1985 but calls this walk his "hardest project yet" because of the extreme heat and humidity.

The BBC's Charles Haviland reports.
