Eddie Kidd has completed the London Marathon
Former stunt rider Eddie Kidd has completed the London Marathon - nearly two months after he started the race.

Mr Kidd, of Seaford, East Sussex, was left brain damaged after an accident in 1996 when he crashed his bike jumping across a drag strip.

He has been walking up to a mile a day since 17 April using a specially-designed walking frame, in aid of the charity Children with Cancer UK.

He crossed the finishing line on the Mall at 1830 BST

Well done Eddie[Razz]

Brilliant feat of endurance, have seen him a couple of times in Seaford which is just along the coast from Brighton and where I go to take cliff photos.
