Editors stars Tom Smith and Russell Leetch both completed the London Marathon at the weekend.

The pair ran the 26.2 mile course in a time of 4 hours and 15 minutes, with Smith coming in a second faster than his band mate.

Smith and Leetch, whose finishing time can be seen on virginlondonmarathon.com, were running to raise money for Oxjam.

They said: “Oxfam face many hurdles and struggles in the work they do.

“Their life-saving work is an amazing thing and for us to challenge ourselves in a different way and commit to a marathon hopefully will raise money and awareness to a charity we support very much.”

The pair raised a total of £5,465.39, according to their donation page.

Meanwhile, Smith confirmed at the end of last year that the band were ready to begin work on their next studio album.
