A carrier pigeon has flown a computer memory card between two counties quicker than a rural computer could upload a five minute video to the web.
In a race, designed to highlight rural broadband problems, campaigners began to upload the video as the bird left East Yorkshire for Lincolnshire.
It took Rory the pigeon about 80 minutes to deliver the files from Beverley to Wrangle, easily beating the time it took the computer.
