'Tony the Fridge' reaches Land's End

A South Tyneside man has arrived at Land's End in Cornwall after running from John O'Groats in the Highlands of Scotland - with a fridge on his back.

Tony Phoenix-Morrison, from Hebburn, ran 40 marathons in 40 days carrying the 40kg fridge.

The 49-year-old is raising money for the Sir Bobby Robson Foundation for cancer research.

The regular marathon runner, who ran for about seven hours a day, said he carried the fridge to represent the burden of cancer.

He crossed the finish line to cheers from supporters, with his seven-year-old son Rocco on his shoulders.
