‘I’m going to be (500 Miles)’ was a hit song for the Proclaimers in the 80s, but for one RAF veteran, it’s been the inspiration behind a fundraising challenge.

Former RAF Regiment Gunner Sean Allerton is paralysed, but he has decided to cover 500 miles in his wheelchair for charity.

He set off this week at RAF Church Fenton in Yorkshire cheered on by the singers themselves.
