Two Scarborough RNLI crew members, Kyle Patel and Richard Egan, have entered the London Marathon on 24 April.

They are hoping to raise at least £2,300 for the lifeboat.

Kyle said: “Anyone who knows me will realise what a big achievement this will be for me. After all it was only three years ago when I weighed 20 stone and smoked 40 cigs a day.
