A police officer has set off on an incredible 230 mile run to raise money for the families of his fallen colleagues.
PC Steve Phillips will run from Hyde to Stoke on his first leg today - before completing just short of ten marathons in just 6 days.
The run is in memory of fellow GMP officers, Nicola Hughes and Fiona Bone, who died in Hattersley in September.
Money will be split between the COPS - Care of Police Survivors - and the North West Benevolent Fund.
