Reece McCullagh crossed the border back into England yesterday having began his run in John O'Groats on May 26.

The plasterer and decorator is nearly two weeks into his run, which he hopes to complete in 30 days.

To do this Reece has been averaging around 33 miles a day - or one and a quarter marathons every day for the past 13 days.

Reece said: "I made it back to England! I must say Scotland has been a pleasure - what an absolutely beautiful country it is!"
