Briton who ran Canada dubs this 'the finish not the end'

A British man who completed a run across Canada said this was "the finish, but certainly not the end".

Jamie McDonald tweeted a picture of his hand in the Pacific Ocean to show he had completed the run.

Mr McDonald took up the challenge after suffering from a debilitating immune deficiency and potentially fatal spinal condition syringomyelia as a child, and spent the first nine years of his life in and out of children's hospitals.

Jamie has permanently injured and distorted his foot. He will be having a homecoming celebration on 13 February in his home town of Gloucester.
