Soldier cycles across Britain

Have your say

A SOLDIER from East Lothian who lost both legs during a blast in Afghanistan has cycled across Britain ahead of taking on America.

Private Steven Richardson, 23, from Tranent, is among eight wounded and injured troops preparing for an American coast-to-coast ride next month.

Raising money for Help for Heroes, the team consists of four double-amputees riding handbikes and four cyclists taking part on upright bikes.
