'The Human Swan' is coming to Essex this weekend as part of a world record breaking challenge. 

Sacha Dench will be visiting Markshall Estate tomorrow (August 14) from 9am, to raise awareness about the effects of climate change. 

She will be flying an electric paramotor - a bit like an electric fan with a large sheet above her – all the way around Britain as part of the Round Britain Climate Challenge, in the hope of gaining a Guinness World Record for the greatest distance flown by electric paramotor in a 30-day period.

Sacha turned her attention to climate change after her family lost their home in the Australian bushfires. 

Markshall Estate Executive Director, Kath Cockshaw, said: "We're really looking forward to welcoming Sascha to Markshall Estate on the Round Britain Climate Challenge. 

"This visit highlights the work we're undertaking to protect biodiversity in our conservation landscape, showcasing how we’re tackling the causes of climate change on a 21st century estate, and how we help our visitors make simple changes at home to live more sustainably.

"We're proud to be taking the lead on climate action in the region."

Sacha started just outside Glasgow and has travelled through the Lake District, around Wales, the West Country, Devon and Cornwall along the south coast and is now heading north up the east coast.

Sacha and her team will also be visiting Mersea Island.

On her journey she will also be calling on people to sign up to Count Us In, a campaign to inspire people to take personal slimate action.
