Runner breaks half marathon record in three-piece suit

A runner from Birmingham says he's broken the record for the fastest half marathon while wearing a three-piece suit.

James Drakeford had to beat one hour, 39 minutes and 50 seconds, set in Birmingham in 2010, and he says he managed it.

James already has a number of other fancy dress running records, last time wearing university graduation robes.

He says he even beat his time last year, when he was wearing an orthodox running outfit!

James says his next record attempt will be to run the fastest time as a piece of fruit - but he hasn't decided which fruit, or when he'll do it.
