Staff at a Norfolk hospital are gearing up for a 777-mile charity challenge.

The team from Cromer Hospital will be cycling the distance to its twin town, Crest, in southern France.

The static cycle ride is to mark the hospital's 150th anniversary.

The money raised will go towards the Cromer and District Hospital Charitable Fund.

Iain Young, operational manager, is covering a big part of the distance. He said: 'It's going to be a big challenge, but we thought it would be a great way to not only highlight 150 years of Cromer Hospital but also to raise money for the hospital charity.'
