A dozen Scarborough RNLI crew members have set off on a 145-mile relay dash from their lifeboat station to Blackpool.

The crew set off at 07:00 this morning and are hoping to complete the run - which takes in Helmsley, Sutton Bank, Thirsk, Harrogate, Blubberhouses and Clitheroe - in under 30 hours.

The team are taking it in turns to complete the task, with some of the volunteers running 10 miles and others going for up to 30.

They're putting themselves through it, carrying donation buckets as they go, to raise money for the RNLI.

Lee Martin, the team's Senior Coxswain, says: "A few months ago, two crew members from Blackpool cycled the route over a couple of days and the money raised they shared half with Blackpool Lifeboat Station and half with Scarborough.

"So I said we'll return the favour, but we'll do one better and run there non-stop."
