Former stunt-bike champion Eddie Kidd is taking on his toughest challenge ever – finishing the London Marathon.

The severely-disabled daredevil passed through the Isle of Dogs yesterday in the latter stages of the race which he began on April 17.

The 51-year-old was left wheelchair-bound after a crash which left him in a coma for almost four months.

Kidd has been attempting to complete a mile a day, supported by a walking frame.

Team member Glen Williams said: “He’s a legend. It is very hard for him. People are always pulling over in taxis and cars to give their support and give donations to Eddie.”

Eddie has already raised £50,000 for Children with Cancer UK.

He is set to finish the marathon on June 6.
