Lloyd Scott is something of a local hero. This afternoon he finished the London marathon is what I believe is a record time, and his personal best time ........... for slowness. In 2002 Lloyd completed the event in 5 days, wearing an old fashioned brass diving suit. This afternoon, dressed in armour as St George, and pulling a dragon he completed the 26 mile course after 8 days. He has been part of an effort that has raised nearly £2 million for children's charities.
He is, of course, barking mad. In the nicest possible way.
At the beginning - St George's Day, 23 April.
At the finish line with Sir Steve Redgrave the world record holding Olympic gold medal winning rower.
Apparently his nickname is "That Bloke".
Give that man a jammy dodger. And a beer, never mind the tea.
