Young cyclists from Benwick took part in a Pudsey peloton on Friday morning to raise funds for charity.

The children paid £1.50 each to cycle a mile around the village.

Children In Need raised a record £46.6m, on a night that saw tributes paid to late host Sir Terry Wogan.

The veteran broadcaster presented the annual charity event for 35 years until poor health saw him pull out in 2015.

Friday night’s BBC One broadcast was the first since Sir Terry died in January and a fundraiser of the year trophy was awarded in his memory.
