The reigning Miss England 2014, Carina Tyrrell, completed the Ice Bucket Challenge at Addenbrooke’s Hospital to raise awareness of motor neurone disease (MND).

Carina Tyrrell, a student doctor at Addenbrooke’s, said: “I shadowed Dr Allen in the MND clinic at Addenbrooke’s and I am very much aware of the symptoms of this debilitating neurodegenerative disease how it affects patients’ lifestyles.

“The more support for this incurable disease that can be given the better.”
