Adventurer runs coast to coast in Canada

An adventurer has completed a year-long run across Canada and become the first person to go coast-to-coast without support.

Jamie McDonald from Gloucester reached the Pacific Ocean 275 days after setting off on his epic journey.

He ran most of the 5000 miles dressed as comic book superhero The Flash.

He said: "I just can't believe it's over. I have worked for so long and given this run everything I have."
