Tractors of all colours - red, yellow, blue, green and black - all took to Fenland's roads on Sunday for a charity run in aid of Magpas air ambulance.

Around 50 tractors in total took part with all makes, models and sizes joining the fun.

Starting and finishing in Wimblington the huge convoy took in many of the local towns and villages including Chatteris, March, Manea, Christchurch and Doddington.

Dedicated volunteers carried collecting tins through the villages and organisers are hoping the run will have at least matched last year's total of £2,000 for the charity.

Steve Nuegebauer, who was one of the main organisers, said: "It went very well. We were well supported by the farmers turning out with their tractors and the evening event at Parkfield in Wimblington went really well.

"We were a bit disappointed with the number of people lining the streets, it was no where near as many as last time, but that could just be a sign of the times, or perhaps people had gone out because it was such a nice day.

"But hopefully we will have matched our total from last year when we have made a final count up of all the donations."

He said plans were now being made for a Christmas run in December which will once again include Santa.
