Four friends clambered over 12 foot walls, waded through freezing water and even braved electrocution to complete a gruelling assault course and raise more than £1,500 for three charities.

Rebecca Knight, Lauren Mowbray, Lauren Tawn and Louise Culley, all of Wisbech, took part in the Tough Mudder event in Cirencester Park, Gloucestershire.

The money they raised will be split between MacMillan Cancer Support, The Samaritans and Help for Heroes.

Rebecca Knight chose to run for MacMillan Cancer Support because her mother Julie Knight was diagnosed with bowel cancer two years ago. She has since been given the all clear.

She said: “We had been doing bootcamps since March to get ready for it. The course was 11.5 miles and it took us three and three quarter hours. The obstacles were ok but running through mud was very difficult. It’s not like running on concrete.

“But is such a good team event where everyone helps everyone. I would definitely do it again. It was such a buzz when we finished.”

A Wisbech man has been sent for trial after denying the murder of a 35-year-old man from West Walton.

The agent trying to secure consent for a £210,000 five bedroom house to be turned into a nine bedroom room house in multiple occupation (HMO) told Fenland planners he fails to see why potential noise is an issue.

Two houses not built in accordance with the plans approved by Fenland Council can stay after officials concluded they will “not adversely harm the character and appearance of the area”.

Entertainment agency boss Jason Wright has promised to refund all those who paid £20 a head to see spiritualist Derek Acorah who pulled out of his Wisbech St Mary show at the last moment.
