This just released video shows disabled motorcycle stunt rider Eddie Kidd completing the London Marathon this week.

Produced by ITN the emotion-charged film shows Eddie’s stunt background before showing the herculean effort it took him to complete the 26-mile event.

Eddie, 51, suffered massive injuries when a bike jump went wrong at the Bulldog Bash in 1996 and was told he would never walk again.

He finally completed the event, which he undertook to raise money for Children with Cancer UK, to a rapturous welcome from the likes of Hollywood star Ray Winstone.
