The Big Freeze: Chef's 10-mile hike to cook breakfasts

A UNIVERSITY chef hiked for more than ten miles in freezing conditions to make sure students got their breakfasts.

Callum Law, a chef at Macintosh Hall at St Andrews University, set off from his Dundee home at 6:45am.

Battling icy winds, Mr Law crossed the Tay Bridge and got half way to work before a delivery driver spotted him and picked him up.

"I thought I would walk to the Tay Road Bridge and hopefully get a bus once I was over it," he said. "My boss couldn't believe it, she didn't expect me to come in and everyone said that anyone else would just have taken the day off. But once I started that was it."
