TWO people emerged yesterday after they spent five days in Perspex boxes.

The stunt, at the Gateshead MetroCentre, pitted the pair against each other in challenges to promote the new BT phone book.

The pair were each given £1,500 and had to complete tasks selected by radio station, 100-102 Century FM.

Alison Kennedy from High Heaton, Newcastle, beat her rival, Mark Rye, from Catterick, North Yorkshire.
