Tough new test for paralysed Claire

A paralysed fundraiser from Melton Mowbray who completed the London Marathon using a bionic suit has said her latest challenge could be the toughest yet. Disability rights campaigner Claire Lomas, 33, will spend three weeks cycling 400 miles (644km) around the UK using just her upper body strength to pedal a hand bike. Along the way she will also stop at various schools each day to talk to youngsters about the back injury which left her paralysed from the chest down after a freak riding accident in May 2007.
