Who is "Speedo Mick?

Michael is currently walking from John O’Groats to Lands end in swimming trunks to raise money for charity.

He started his epic trek back on December 10 and has raised almost £80,000 so far.

The die-hard Everton supporter took a break on Sunday to watch the FA Cup third round tie between Everton and rivals Liverpool at Anfield before continuing on his mammoth trip.

He is currently passing through the Lancaster district as part of his 1,000-mile walk.

This afternoon he was spotted walking towards Carnforth from the direction of the M6, before heading along Slyne Road towards Lancaster.
