Flipping mad personal trainer Lucy Harrison managed to topple a tractor tyre 1,000 times to raise cash for charity.

Lucy, 24, of Pudsey, set herself the back-breaking task to boost funds for the Take One Moment charity, set up in memory of her cousin Tom Atkinson, from near Driffield, who died in a road accident when he was 19. On Saturday, spectators watched as the super-fit trainer flipped the 75kg tyre 1,000 times in less than three hours 56 minutes, around her work car park at Motive8 on Marshall Street in Leeds. Lucy said: “It was probably one of the toughest things I’ve ever done. It was difficult. It’d got up to 600 in training and from 600 onwards on the day, it was increasingly harder. It got very heavy. But when I saw my time, I dug deep and that spurred me on.”
