A woman's been in court in Carlisle accused of defrauding a charity set up by a teenager with cancer.
Thirty-two-year-old Hayley McTaggart faced five fraud charges and three counts of theft at the city's crown court.
Amongst the accusations is that she set up a bogus raffle for Alice's Escapes - a charity founded by Cumbrian teenager Alice Pyne, who died following a five-year battle with cancer.
The defendant, from Whitehven, is also accused of taking a cheque for £2,000 from the charity to pay for a sponsored walk up Kilimanjaro.
She denies all the charges and will next be at court in June.
A Dumfries man has raised more than £2,000 for the British Red Cross by hauling a 16 ton truck for 60 yards.
Dave Murray undertook the challenge on Sunday 24 May in front of a crowd in the Tesco car park at Cuckoo Bridge.
The 47-year-old Red Cross first aid volunteer wore a special harness and hauled himself along on a rope.
He dragged the massive truck from a standing start to the finishing line in just three minutes.
But the Dumfries and Galloway Royal Infirmary nursing auxiliary wasn’t happy that it took him so long, blaming a dip in the road and a split sole on his trainer for holding him up.
The father of a boy hospitalised after a go-kart ploughed into him during a "bogie" race in the Borders has said he wants the event to continue next year.

The youngsters all suffered cuts and bruises and Callum was taken by ambulance to Borders General Hospital, but was later released.
The event, which took place on a hillside above Denholm on Saturday afternoon, was immediately cancelled after the accident.
Organisers are now reviewing their position on whether to stage the event next year.
Callum's father Peter Flannery insists the race should go-ahead.
