Pensioner plans to cross the Atlantic in homemade whale

A former SAS trooper is taking record breaking to a whole new level.

The 73 year old is planning to cross the Atlantic in a giant 65 foot homemade whale called Moby.

Tom McClean spoke to BBC Radio 5 live Daily's Adrian Chiles about his 20 year old dream adventure and why he's put 100 thousand pounds of his own money into it.

He said: "We're going to go amongst them, film them, put on some whale noises and spout abit and see what happens. Then we're off to New York"."
