The Pride of Britain turn out in force

This year's Daily Mirror Pride of Britain Awards was one to remember for our nominee in the fund raiser category, who went to London to represent Calendar.

He didn't win the overall award but he did persuade two X Factor judges to make a very special call to his son back home near Skegness. Daniel Harris was there for us and his report does contain some flash photography.

Mark Smith gets bike safety message across to Prime Minister

Lincolnshire's Pride of Britain 'Fundraiser of the Year' finalist Mark Smith has been speaking to the Prime Minister about his campaign for compulsory wearing of cycle helmets.

Mark was nominated for the award for his work since his son Ryan suffered life-changing injuries after being knocked off his bike.

He missed out on the prize, but says the chance to talk to David Cameron was a great opportunity.
