VIDEO: Woodhall Spa Jubilee Park manager completes 24-hour marathon

It’s a fair bet that Joe Stanhope slept very soundly yesterday (Tuesday).

He’s the manager of Jubilee Park in Woodhall Spa and was finally able to put his feet up after completing an amazing 24-hour swimming marathon.

Mr Stanhope started his swim at 7pm on Sunday night and reckons he clocked up around 27 miles.

He did have company as lifeguards from the outdoor pool at Jubilee Park joined him.
