Coast swimmer Sean Conway arrives at John O'Groats

Sean Conway has made history by swimming the length of mainland Britain, from Land's End to John O'Groats, completing a gruelling four-month-long fundraising trip.

The 32-year-old from Cheltenham left Cornwall on 30 June bound for the far north of the Scottish mainland.

The BBC's Andrew Anderson was there when he reached the finishing line.
