A regional daily’s sports editor found himself on the front page of a rival newspaper after taking part in a running event.
The Newcastle-based Journal pictured a smiling Nick on the route in Gateshead.
After seeing himself, Nick took to Twitter to share his surprise.
He wrote: “Nice to get a big picture byline on The Journal today – never had a double front page in all my time at the Northern Echo.”
Peter Barron, former editor at the Darlington-based Echo, also noticed Nick’s appearance.
He wrote: “Of all the people who ran in the Great North 10k, who should be chosen for the front page of The Journal but the sports editor of a rival paper.”
