RUTLAND’s Sarah Outen has arrived in Calais after completing the first leg of her adventure around the world.

Children from 10 primary school in Rutland were at Tower Bridge in London on Friday to wave Sarah, 25, from Ashwell, off as she set off on a two-and-a-half year voyage.

Sarah will use man power alone to kayak, cycle and sail around the world from London to London.

The first leg of her journey was to kayak down the Thames, onto Dover and then across the English Channel to France.
