Most people like a coffee and bacon butty before starting their day, but not one Doncaster schoolteacher.

Steve Lowe of Kingfisher Primary decided to set himself the ultimate Sport Relief challenge and ran over 20 miles before class this morning.

He set off at 4.30am with headteacher Nathan Atkinson, who completed 15 miles, and set a cracking pace reaching the school playground shortly after 8.30am.

Mr Atkinson said: “When we set off you couldn’t even see in front of your face. I had to ring him to tell him to slow down as he was going to get into school before everybody else!”
