Chris Todd has a dream: to walk from Wales to Ireland.  His means of doing so is a paddle-wheel raft that he made at home. Alas, 9 hours into a projected 48-hour crossing, he had to stop because of technical problems.  Event coordinator Annie Davies explained:

“He was going really well and making a lot better progress than we’d actually anticipated when he had a problem with his rudders,” said Ms Davies. […]

Mr Todd is expected to try again later in the month and is still hoping to raise £20,000 for both the Royal National Lifeboat Institution and the Wiltshire Blind Association.
