A SOUTH Lakes MP has been running every day this month to raise money for BEAT, a charity which supports people with eating disorders across the UK.

South Lakes MP Tim Farron has been averaging five miles each day, with his running taking him across the constituency and to the Houses of Parliament and Buckingham Palace when he has been working down in London.

Mr Farron said: “I’m delighted to be raising money for the charity BEAT, who do amazing work supporting people with eating disorders and their families."
