Around 5,000 adrenaline junkies tackled mud, fire and electric shocks during the annual Tough Guy challenge at South Perton Farm near Wolverhampton.

The course, containing more than 200 obstacles, took its toll – more than 1,500 competitors failed to finish.

This year's event was won by John Albon from Norway in a time of one hour and 39 minutes.
