Local officers, PCSO Chris Pearson, PCSO Mel Crabtree, PCSO Penny Smith, PC Dougie Challinor and PC Nicola Senescall all got involved and completed the 3.5km run in around 20 minutes and raised around £150 for charity.

PCSO Chris Pearson said: “We were delighted with the support we received from colleagues and members of the public. Some of us are keen runners, but others weren’t so for them it was a great achievement and we are looking to push on to complete one of the local 10k races next year.”

He added: “A huge thanks to everyone who sponsored us.”
