A long-distance runner has become the first-ever person to run every street in Weston.

Paul Cousins, a member of Weston Athletic Club, unknowingly began the feat last year while recovering from a torn patellar tendon.

But after logging his runs with route tracker City Strides, Mr Cousins became determined to conquer all Weston roads.

He recounted: "I was building up my fitness as I recovered from my injury and it became addictive.

"I noticed no one else had completed every street so it became a project."

There are more than 1,000 streets in Weston, spanning around 160 miles, according to City Strider.

Paul believes he has run more than 350 miles in total completing the challenge, taking into account journeys to and from the roads he was yet to cover.
