Football ground relay sets off

A charity relay which is going around all 92 football league grounds in England and Wales has arrived in our region.

One of the group set off this morning cycling from Brunton Park to St James'.

And tomorrow he'll be swapping the bike for running shoes as he heads to the Stadium of Light in Sunderland.

The group are planning to raise thousands of pounds for "Always a Chance" - a charity that tackles the social causes of youth violence in the UK.

Paul Davies Organiser, Always a Chance Relay, said the relay had already raised £30,000 for the charity.
