A team of West Yorkshire firefighters have begun their challenge of cycling from Todmorden to its twin town of Bramsche in Germany to raise £3,000 for charity.

The team of ten will ride the 650-mile route on a rota system, travelling non-stop for three days through England, France, Belgium, Holland and Germany.

The ride will raise money for Save the Children, the Yorkshire Air Ambulance, and The Firefighters Charity.
