A PE teacher has spent the third national coronavirus lockdown running the equivalent of two marathons - to raise vital funds for Prostate Cancer.

Ross Myhill has raised £500 for the national charity as a result of the challenge during January.

The head of PE at Sudbury's Thomas Gainsborough School said: “I have always enjoyed running and I have always wanted to run a marathon at some stage.

“I thought this was a really good challenge and also a great way to raise awareness of such an important charity.

“It also gave me a really good focus at the start of lockdown as running really can help with improved health and wellbeing.
