The event, in its 13th year, is St Elizabeth Hospice's largest annual fundraising event and is expected to bring in more than £200,000 - which will go towards vital care.

It also features Karen Baines, whose husband Ian died last year at the hospice from oesophageal cancer.

"Every single person here has been touched by cancer in some way," she said.

Walkers had a choice of two routes - six miles or 10 miles - with a sea of bright pink t-shirts all setting off and meeting back up at Trinity Park.

Becky Jedrzejewski, events fundraiser for St Elizabeth Hospice, said: "Every year it means so much to us to have so many people committed to this event and we hope all of our walkers had an incredible time."

The final fundraising total for the walk will be known in the next few weeks.
