TWO Swindon police officers have raised more than £6,000 for Children In Need by completing three marathons in three days.

Adam Leakey and Jon Hewlett took a total of 17 hours and ten minutes to complete the 78.3 miles last week.

Adam said: “Final marathon completed in six hours and 40 minutes – mentally and physically exhausted but it’s complete.

“It hasn’t sunk in what we have achieved but your donations as support helped us through the intense pain we were running in so thank you.”
