Andy McIntosh, 42 from Strathaven near Glasgow, is a disabled Army Corporal who will be attempting, on a TGA Breeze mobility scooter, to beat the world record for the 'Fastest journey from John-O'-Groats to Land's End on an Electric Mobility Vehicle'.

Andy served in The Cheshire Regiment for 14 years experiencing front line action in Bosnia, Iraq and Northern Ireland. Since losing his ability to walk from a rare vascular condition Andy and his young family have been supported by several military charities.
