A Laois man is attempting to set a Guinness World Record by driving on a motorbike across 700km of frozen ice.

Gary O Keefe from Abbeyleix is in Siberia as part of a team of adventurers driving across Lake Baikal.

The lake, which is five hundred miles long and one mile deep, has seen temperatures in the region as low as minus sixty degrees.

Mr O Keefe says the ice is very unpredictable.
