And around 15 colleagues of Louise Clegg will complete a 30 mile walk tomorrow to help raise cash towards a honeymoon for the couple.

The workmates will set off from Burnley Police Station at 6am and will walk to expect to Witton Park in Preston with a stop off at Accrington Police Station.

Brave Louise, who is just 29 and mum to two-year-old Toby, was diagnosed with cancer in September. She has undergone intensive chemotherapy and is looking forward to walking down the aisle in the Ribble Valley on the most romantic day of the year.
