The BBC reports that West Sussex County Council has signed a document to show its support for a cycle route between London and Paris.

"The plans involve creating a cycle route that passes through West Sussex with surfacing and signposts common to both sides of the English Channel.

However, those who have signed up to the scheme have said getting it off the ground will depend heavily on external funding being available, with bids likely for lottery and European Union grants.

Councillor Derek Whittington said it was hoped that much of the work would be completed in time for the 2012 Olympic Games."
