LAND ROVER is using the milestone of its one millionth Discovery rolling off the production line to help raise £1 million to provide clean water and sanitation to 45,000 people in Uganda.

The landmark car was unveiled at the firm's Lode Lane plant today (Wednesday) and will now set off, with two other Land Rovers Discoveries, on a 50-day, 8,000-mile trip from Birmingham to Beijing to highlight the campaign and raise vital cash.

The charity mission has been inspired by the firm's partnership with the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies.

The original Discovery was launched in 1989 and since that launch the car has picked up more than 200 international awards.
