Tony 'the fridge' Morrison finished his challenge on Newcastle quayside last night. He ran 60 miles in 24 hours with a fridge weighing 42kg strapped to his back.
His efforts have set a new World endurance record.
Tony, who last year ran the equivalent of 30 Great North Runs in 30 days with the fridge on his back, was greeted by cheers from supporters and well wishers as he completed his final lap.
He says it wasn't about setting records, it was about raising money and awareness for the charity.
