HEADING on a collision course in Somerset today (Monday) are Storm Ciara and Speedo Mick.

Fundraiser Michael Cullen, who goes by the nickname Speedo Mick is on the last few legs of a charity walk from John o'Groats to Land's End.

He's wearing nothing more than a pair of Speedos, a scarf and a hat, despite the Met Office warning of gales of up to 90mph.

He set out from Glastonbury earlier and plans to pass through Othery, Burrowbridge and Monkton Heathfield on his way to Taunton. where he will rest up before continuing the challenge tomorrow.

Mr Cullen told the PA news agency: "Speedos are designed to get wet and mine are absolutely soaking in this weather.

"The wind is whipping my back, and it feels like I am getting flogged.

"I really wouldn’t advise anybody else to do this – I can’t believe I am out in this myself but, I am doing this for a really good cause and no storm is going to stop me getting to Land’s End to complete this challenge."
