Emmerdale actress Charlie Hardwick joined Pam and Ian in the studio with Margaret Musgrave - a Red Cross fundraiser for the North - to talk about the new Red Cross campaign to raise money to pay for hundreds more wheelchairs.

The campaign is aiming to raise £45,000 to pay for 300 new wheelchairs across the North East and Cumbria.
