A survivor of last year's Manx2 plane crash in Cork has completed a 500km charity cycle from Belfast to Cork.

Mark Dickens, from Kent in England, said he did the cycle as a tribute to those who helped his recovery.

He raised money for the Children's Leukaemia Association and for Sports Relief.

The 42-year-old father-of-three was one of 12 people on board the Manx2 plane that crashed in thick fog at Cork Airport in February 2011.

The pilot, co-pilot and four passengers died.

Mr Dickens suffered broken ribs, collar bone and shoulder blade and a punctured lung, but he has made a good recovery.

This afternoon, Mr Dickens and his brother-in-law Pete Mitchell completed the last leg of his four-day charity cycle from Belfast to Cork where he was met by his wife Tara.

Now Mr Dickens says he has a whole different set of memories of Ireland.
