'I've always wanted to swim across the ocean'

A British man is due to begin his challenge to become the first person to swim across the Atlantic Ocean.

Ben Hooper from Cheltenham, wants to raise a million pounds for charity during his journey from Senegal, in west Africa, to northern Brazil.

He'll be accompanied by two support boats as he swims for about eight hours a day for four months.
