A popular Harborough village fundraising event has been called off for the second year on the spin.

The Great Glen Wheelbarrow Race has been cancelled because of the Covid pandemic.

The 11th staging of the annual spectacular in August 2019 was hailed as the biggest and best yet.

But the organisers of the all-action event which supports Leicestershire’s LOROS Hospice say they haven’t got enough time to put it on safely this year.

They are now vowing to bounce back with the best wheelbarrow race yet in Great Glen in the autumn of 2022.
