Man races Tube YouTube video: After Jason Helptonstall internet hit, wheelchair user Anthony Ince makes own version

A week ago, a man raced a Tube train from one stop to the next on foot, and beat it. This week, a man attempted the same feat… in a wheelchair.

We don’t want to spoil anything, but 43-year-old cerebral palsy sufferer Anthony Ince makes it an incredible ride.

It’s seen with a pretty hair-raising point-of-view camera, as Anthony attempts the route from Mansion House to Cannon Street, with a time of one minute and 20 seconds to stay ahead of the Tube as it rumbles along underground.

Anthony really gives it his all, but he comes grinding to a halt when faced with a flight of stairs – narrowly missing the train which runner Jason Helptonstall caught with ease, earning him four million views on YouTube last week.

The wheelchair video was created to highlight how difficult using the London Underground is for those requiring step-free access.

Just 25 per cent of stations offer step-free access.

‘I tend to just use buses. It’s too difficult to know where I can and can’t get to when I take the tube,’ Anthony said.

‘It feels like us wheelchair users are being ignored, despite how positively London came across during the Paralympics in 2012.’
