Tony the Fridge takes on a new challenge

Now many of us like to get out and about at weekends, enjoy the fresh air or do something energetic.

One Tyneside man is taking that to the extreme, as Tony Phoenix-Morrison is running 100 miles in 24 hours to raise money for the Sir Bobby Robson Foundation.

This task is difficult enough for anyone, but Tony has earned himself a bit of a reputation for doing things the hard way.

To explain, Kenny Toal joined him on Newcastle's Quayside for the start of the challenge.
