BBC Look North presenters Harry Gration and Amy Garcia have raised more than £125,000 for Sport Relief on a tandem Tour de Yorkshire.

The pair rode the Yorkshire stages of the Tour de France on a tandem, taking eight days to cover the 250 miles.

The presenters cycled between 30 and 50 miles per day, battling driving rain and high winds to complete the task.

The pair stayed at Stone House Hotel, near Hawes, during the trip.

Josh Westwood, from the hotel said: "Despite the huge effort they have put in - and the fact they had just ridden over the notorious Buttertubs Pass which is next door to us- they were still in great spirits and were a pleasure to be around during the weekend."

All donations go to Sport Relief.
