Man walks to royal wedding in suit of armour


A Sussex man has succeeded in his challenge to walk from Worthing to London in a suit of armour in time for the royal wedding.

Colin Bickers agreed to make the 65-mile (105km) journey in the five-stone (32kg) suit for a bet at a local pub.

He left on Saturday - St George's Day - and said wearing armour had not been easy in the unseasonable hot weather.

He raised over £3,000 for the charities Help for Heroes and the Chestnut Tree House Children's Hospice, near Arundel.
