A radio presenter from Knaresborough has raised almost twice as much as he hoped for charity by swapping a stag party for a fundraising bike ride. Pete Egerton, who presents the drivetime show in Viking FM in Hull, has colitis, a condition that affects his bowel and means he has to be careful what he eats and drinks.

He and his friends cycled 170 miles coast to coast and have now collected almost £2000 for Crohns and Colitis UK. He is now thanking everyone who has supported his fundraising appeal which he also hopes has raised awareness of his condition.
