A Bury St Edmunds darts player has thrown a million and one in just ten days – and even checked out on a double.

Colin Freeman threw a 100,000 score each session, standing at the oche for an average of four hours 53 minutes a night.

In all it took Colin 48 hours and 57 minutes to complete his challenge – throwing a total of 43, 731 darts.

Colin was even joined by an internet audience for his final throws as his endeavours were steamed live on Periscope - and viewed by more than 50 people.

Colin says the fund-raising challenge, in aid of CLIC Sargent, will raise at least £1,000.

The league Colin plays in, the Bury Summer Sixes Darts League, has raised £55,000 for CLIC Sargent over the last 11 seasons.
