James Bagge, 65, is walking 1,500 miles through Europe to raise money for unpaid carers.

Mr Bagge has trekked through 287 miles and 11 counties since March 28 for his three-month Walking4Norfolk challenge.

He will now pass through Mont Saint-Michel in France and the Pyrenees mountain range before ending at Santiago de Compostela on Spain’s west coast.

Mr Bagge, who is currently in Weymouth, said on his Walking4Norfolk blog: “It’s been a great couple of weeks. Challenging but rewarding. Little rain amazingly but just managing the aftermath. Time for a rest to sort out the physical niggles.”

He hopes to raise £60,000 which will be donated to various carers’ groups by the Norfolk Community Foundation.
