David Walliams' good luck message to 'Channel swim' girl

A 10-year-old who is swimming the distance of the English Channel to raise money for the NHS received a special good luck message.

Connie Emmett is using a paddling pool in her back garden in Cranleigh to cover the 23-mile distance.

BBC Radio Surrey spoke to her, and played her a good luck message from comedian, author and Channel swimmer David Walliams.
