A POSTMAN from Exmouth proved he can hack long treks by crossing the finish line first having completed a 26 mile walk in aid of the NSPCC.

Roy Zelionka, a postie for 28 years, was the first of a number of walkers to return in the Can You Hack It event held at Bicton College on Sunday, September 27, to raise money for the charity.
