A charity walker trekking from Milton Keynes to Cyprus is appealing for help with bed and breakfast when his route brings him through St Albans.

Postman Malcolm Underwood will be heading off on his 2,500 mile walk on March 1, and will be staying overnight in St Albans.

His trek, which will take about four months and two weeks, will be in aid of Cancer Research, Alzheimer's and dementia, and the NSPCC, and takes him through France, Belgium, Germany, Austria, Hungary, Romania, Bulgaria, Greece and Turkey.

Malcolm said: "I lost both my parents to cancer and have always wanted to do something for charity. Something challenging for myself.

"This is not just about my parents, this is for all the people who have lost their fight or are fighting this horrible disease."
