Cyclists 'to raise £1m' for Help for Heroes charity

Over a thousand cyclists took to the streets of London on Sunday in aid of the armed forces charity Help for Heroes.

Although the ride was long-planned, organisers say the killing of Drummer Lee Rigby on 22 May in Woolwich has led to an "outpouring of support" for the charity.

It expects to raise a million pounds from the event.

Simon Clemison reports.
