Paul does traffic-free walk

Global Traffic Network boss Paul Hutton's completed a 105-mile traffic-free walk for charity along the Grand Union Canal.

Along with wife Sarah, he's raised more than £3,000 for Cancer Research UK and the Make-A-Wish Foundation.

Paul and Sarah set off on the four-day trek last Thursday, straight after getting home from the Radio Festival, departing from the Watford Gap services on the M1 heading for Little Venice in London.

Paul told "It seemed a good idea in July when we thought of it, but it turned out to be really tough. We were walking from dawn-to-dusk each day and by the last day we were exhausted with really sore limbs. But now we’ve done it, there’s a real sense of achievement."

The adventure – called the M1 Walk because of its original route – featured on BBC Three Counties, BBC Northampton and Mix 96 along the way.

The pair have vowed never to do anything like it again!
