MARK Felix's career is growing from strength to strength as he continues to top the table of the nation's strongest men.

The 37-year-old self-employed plasterer entered his first strong man competition in 2002 and hasn't looked back since.

Mark, who is originally from Grenada but now lives in Great Harwood, holds the title of Northern England's Strongest Man and took third place in the England's Strongest Man contest at the weekend.

His proud wife Denny said: "It was very close, there were only two-and-a-half points between first, second and third. He did very well and is very pleased."

Mark is now in training for the Britain's Strongest Man contest in May.

He said: "I am looking forward to the competition. I have been doing well so far and this will be the biggest event I have entered."
