23 June 2014 Last updated at 21:42 BST

A Cumbrian fell runner has beaten a 27-year-old record for tackling all of Alfred Wainwright's 214 peaks in the Lake District.

Steve Birkinshaw ran 320 miles (515km) and ascended 36,000m (118,000ft) in six days and 13 hours.

The previous record was set by Joss Naylor in 1987, who completed the challenge in seven days, one hour and 25 minutes.

The 214 fells were described in Wainwright's seven-volume Pictorial Guide to the Lakeland Fells (1955-66).
