The longest commute!

2004

Do you have a long commute to work? We bet it isn't as long as the journey Chris McKee makes to work as a police constable in west London. Because "home" for PC McKee is the New Zealand city of Dunedin, 12,000 miles away.

PC McKee, 48, is able to make the long trip to South Island because of flexible working hours. They allow him to work long hours for two months and then take the next two months off.

We reckon that this is only the longest commute in the world, but probably the most 'flexible' interpretation of flexible working.
