BBC presenter Matt Baker passes through Fenland during Children in Need Rickshaw Challenge

BBC presenter Matt Baker passed through Fenland this morning as he continued his epic Children in Need Rickshaw Challenge.

The One Show presenter is pedalling 484 miles from Edinburgh Castle to London to coincide with the charity’s annual appeal tomorrow.

After arriving in Peterborough last night, having travelled through Thorney, the former Blue Peter star’s ride took him into Whittlesey and Pondersbridge as he travels across the Fens to Cambridge.

The flat terrain is set to provide a welcome relief for Matt who has endured a tough week biking across the country.

His efforts have already raised nearly �700,000 for Children in Need.
