Two BBC television presenters have raised more than £270,000 for charity after completing a three-legged walk across Yorkshire.

Harry Gration and Paul Hudson walked 121 miles (193 km) across North, South and West Yorkshire for Sport Relief.

They said the total, which has just been confirmed, said "something about the generosity of Yorkshire folk".

Some of Yorkshire's most recognisable landscapes were included in the route, including Otley Chevin and Castle Hill.

Along the Way, Gration, presenter of the BBC's Look North, and Paul Hudson, weather forecaster and climate correspondent, visited Rotherham, Barnsley, Huddersfield, Halifax, Bradford, Otley and Harrogate.

Talking about the total, Gration said: "I think when we set out we had expectations we might hit about £150,000 - then when it crept up to £200,000 Paul said we are going to make quarter of a million."

"And now we've hit £277,000," he added.
