Three friends have set a world record for completing the longest ever journey by taxi. The trio arrived in Covent Garden, London, earlier after driving 43,319.5 miles (69,716.12km) in their 20-year-old black cab Hannah. Paul Archer, 23, from Gloucestershire, Johno Ellison, 27, from Leeds, and Leigh Purnell, 23, from Staffordshire, began their journey 15 months ago. They have driven across four continents and 50 countries.

The three university friends have also set a record for the highest altitude reached by taxi, having reached 5,225.4 meters (17,143ft) in Qinghai Province, China in the cab. A Guinness World Records spokeswoman said the fare they clocked up on the meter totaled £79,006.80. Mr.Purnell said: "We thought it would be difficult getting on - being in a metal box 24 hours a day, but we've got on well and stayed really good friends."
