Joined by friends and fellow darts players, Glenn Underwood and Matt Nichols stayed up all night recently to complete a 24-hour darts marathon. Starting at midday on Saturday, May 28, the pair from Great Cornard played non-stop, by themselves for much of this time.

They were trying to build up as large a score as possible, while raising money for Papyrus, a UK charity dedicated to the prevention of young suicides.

Mr Underwood said: “We are trying to get it out there. Make young people aware that there is someone to speak to.”

Held at The Brook Inn, Great Cornard, the pair scored 200,000 points, some way shy of the 2.5million world record.
