A charity cyclist completed an all-day 200-mile ride around Pitsford reservoir in the Brixworth Country Park on Tuesday.

Steve Blakemore, who works for Kettering firm 1st Reaction Security, was raising money for dog charity Bravo, which cares for ex-working dogs which have come to the end of their working lives.

Mr Blakemore, who has raised about £2,000 in sponsorship, said: “Many people said they would come along and cycle with me to support what I am doing and to help me get through the pain barrier of such a big distance.”

He has thanked a number of local sponsors for their help.
