Thousands of pounds have been raised by runners for a Newark charity.

Fourteen runners took part in Newark Half-marathon on Sunday to raise awareness and money for Counselling and Support for Young People (CASY).

Tim Parker and friends Roger Ruane, Chris Yeardsley and Steve Martin were running in memory of his 15-year-old son Joe Parker who passed away in November 2018.
