It was planned as a summer bike ride but three cyclists battled hours of torrential rain to raise £2,000 for Cancer Research UK.

Paul and Caroline Cordon joined Clive Sutton to complete the gruelling 220 miles of the Coast-to-Coast ride from Southport to Hornsea.

The cycling trio, all from Bentley, wheeled past tens of Jubilee weekend street parties as they made their way across the country.

Gas engineer Paul, 54, said: “I think if it hadn’t been for charity, we might have stopped at one point but we decided we had to keep going!”
