Vintage car from Cornwall travels across America

27 August 2013 Last updated at 19:32 BST

A couple from Saltash in Cornwall have driven 25,000 miles (40,000km) in an 80-year-old Austin Seven car.

Guy Butcher and his partner Eunice Kratky drove down the western seaboard of North and South America for charity.

The trip started with the car being shipped to Baltimore, and then they drove into Canada before taking a ferry from the Yukon to Alaska to start the drive to the southern tip of Chile.

It took almost nine months in a vehicle which does about 45 miles (70 km) an hour.

The couple are now writing a book about their time on the road.
