Whitstable man aims for marathon record

A Whitstable man is aiming to become the youngest person to run 100 marathons when he completes a race in Deal on New Year's Eve.

Ryan Holmes, 21, has covered more than 2,500 miles so far, running an average of two races a week.

His efforts have also raised thousands for Cancer Research in honour of a good friend who is suffering from myeloma.

"It's been challenging at times but it's been a good journey," he told BBC South East Today.
