A student from Watford travelled from London to Malaga in Spain in just 36 hours without spending a penny of his own money as part of his university's rag week celebration.

James Cottee, 19, of Westfield Avenue, a past pupil of St Michael’s School who is now a biomedical science student at Kings College, London, joined 60 other "jail breakers" in the fund-raising jaunt carrying nothing but a letter of authorisation from the organising charity.

And James' trek to Malaga meant that he and his travel mate won the challenge by travelling further than anyone else.

The downside to James’ journey is that he found himself stranded unable to travel home cost free. Nonetheless his efforts raised £400 for the charity Hitting Hunger Hard, a campaign based in Sudan.
