MALVERN has a new world record holder.

Kieran Deegan set a new Guinness record for running the London Marathon dressed as a ventilator.

This made him the fastest runner as a piece of medical equipment.

The 37 year-old, who works as a technician on ventilators, ran the marathon in three hours 23 minutes.

Officials from the Guinness Book of World Records were on hand to confirm his time.

He said: "It went really well - the costume held together really well but the body, not so much."

Mr Deegan is raising money for the charity Against Breast Cancer and has raised more than £2,000.
