'Longest march' for Christian Aid

Christian Aid is organising a 1,000-mile march to demand that the Government takes firmer action on reducing carbon emissions.

More than 50,000 people are expected to take part in the Cut the Carbon march, which Christian Aid claims will be the longest protest march in UK history.

A team of 20 people will walk the entire route, which will take in 70 towns and cities, starting in Belfast on 14 July and finishing in London on 2 October.

A spokeswoman for Christian Aid said: "Increasingly, we are seeing climate change affect the people we work with. Natural disasters are more frequent."
