Tumbles and triumphs as Andrew nears goal

Six months after embarking on an epic cycling journey across the world, Andrew Crompton is finally nearing his final destination. His trip, which sees the Bolton insurance broker aim to raise money for Carers Trust and the Bolton Lads and Girls Club by travelling from Manchester to Melbourne, spans three continents, through 18 countries and 14 time zones. In recent weeks he has braved his first (and hopefully last) nasty fall, been treated like a celebrity by selfie-loving locals in India and put in his longest day of cycling so far. Carers Trust caught up with him in Cambodia just before he headed to Vietnam and on to Australia.
