Damning Evidence Amy Hughes Cheated at Her World Record Treadmill Run

Further to my open letter to Amy Hughes on August 2, 2017 with the subject of "Open Letter to Amy Hughes - Claim of World Record for 7 Day Treadmill Run", I have now found a few of the hidden links to the live stream of the event filmed by Millet Sports. Below are the working links but I would need Millet Sports to reply to me to get a complete set of links.

What I have found is damning evidence of cheating.

Just off the top of my head, what I can see is that:
[1] Facebook is the most user unfriendly website out there. You can't search for content on it like common sense says you would be able to. I had to manually scroll back through all the posts on the Millet Sports Facebook page to find some of the links.


[2] The time/distance display on the treadmill is not shown in any of the live stream videos. Although, you can see a portion of Amy Hughes' legs so it may be possible to estimate speeds for some portions based on cadence and stride length (that will be tedious).


[3] No one is doubting that Amy Hughes was running at the mall for the record attempt, even Guinness has said that. What is in doubt is the distance covered.


[4] We can clearly see that David Keighley is the one doing the vast majority of the recording of the mileage SOLELY. This is in violation of Guinness rules that requires 2 independent witnesses to record the mileage. In addition, Dave Keighley is the boyfriend of Amy Hughes and thus does not even satisfy the requirement of being independent.


[5] When the mall closes and at various other times, I see either no witness watching Amy Hughes or only David Keighley is present. I believe this is also in violation of the Guinness rules that requires there to be at least two independent witnesses present at all times.


[6] But the most damning thing is that I can see Amy Hughes hanging/suspending herself on the bars of the treadmill with her hands while "running" when no one is watching. For example, there are many times she did this when the mall was closed (with Dave Keighley present in behind the dividers) at these times of the Sept 6, 2016 YouTube livestream:

10:55:25 - 10:55:45
10:56:10 - 10:56:32
10:57:42 - 10:57:59
10:58:51 - 10:59:00
11:00:39 - 11:01:01
11:01:58 - 11:02:15
11:05:08 - 11:05:26
11:07:46 - 11:08:10
11:09:10 - 11:09:29
11:10:04 - 11:10:18
11:11:25 - 11:11:44
11:16:14 - 11:16:30
11:29:26 - 11:29:41
11:30:10 - 11:30:29

Edit: Found 2 more times hanging while "running":
8:45:36 - 8:45:47 (Hanging onto bars in plain view of Dave Keighley and others)
9:01:30 - 9:02:13 (Hanging onto Dave Keighley's neck while "running")

I uploaded a few screenshots to http://imgur.com/a/5fASs for illustration.

Each time she hangs on the bars, she keeps a watch over her right side to see if anyone is there. The repeated acts of cheating appear to be intentional.

I believe this is a serious and repeated violation of the record attempt and I need to review all the other live stream videos to see how many instances this occurred. I only have a small portion of one night of the live stream videos from when the mall is closed and yet I was already able to find so many acts of cheating. I will need to see if I can get access to all the remaining video for the other nights.
