A group of women who completed a mammoth driving challenge have been officially welcomed back to Carlisle by the city's mayor.

Edwina Sorkin and Kate Sleath drove from Carlisle to Nordkapp, 350 miles inside the Arctic Circle, to raise £100,000 for two cancer charities.

In 2014 the women set off on a charity drive to Beijing, and called themselves the Beijing Biddies.This year, they're joined by three other women and are now calling themselves the Beijing Biddies and Babes.
