The Man who pedals down the Thames

A city worker who quit his management consultant job, to pedal a floating bike on the Thames, says he's collected more than a quarter of a tonne of rubbish from the river, and nearby canals, within a year.


Dhruv Boruah founded the Thames Project after witnessing plastic pollution while taking part in a yacht race.


He says he now wants to focus on clearing litter from the river bed.
