Vale MP John Bercow has completed a mammoth swimming challenge for charity.
The Speaker of the House of Commons swam 200 lengths, or 5km, in just over two hours and raised nearly £3,000 for Brain Tumour Research as part of its Conquer it Together campaign.
Olympic swimmer Craig Gibbons, who represented Team GB in the 4 x 100 metres freestyle relay at London 2012, was on hand to award Mr Bercow a special medal to mark his achievement.
Mr Bercow said: “I’m delighted – and relieved – to have completed the 5,000 metres.
“As people who were patient enough to count can testify, I am a very plodding swimmer, but I was determined to complete the course because Brain Tumour Research is a fantastic cause which needs all the support it can get.”
The swim was part of an event at the Swan Pool and Leisure Centre in Buckingham on October 13, in which people were given the choice of five sporting disciplines - swimming, running, cycling, spincycling and zumba - to raise funds for the charity.
