A Metropolitan PC is not tired of monkeying around as he battles on to finish the London Marathon on his hands and knees for a gorilla charity.

PC Tom Harrison, 41, has been crawling the London Marathon since Sunday morning and has completed over half the route.

The north London officer, who calls himself Mr Gorilla, is trying to complete the 26.2 mile to raise money for The Gorilla Organisation via donations on Just Giving.

Documenting his progress on Twitter using the handle @GorillaSaver he describes himself as “Just a Gorilla crawling the London Marathon to raise money for The Gorilla Organization. (sic)”

 

Gorillas do persist…

Good effort. Such a shame that he will not be getting a finisher's medal though.
