RACING TODDLER: Little Gabriella Dudley became one of the youngest entrants to pick up a medal in the Race for Life on Sunday.

The 15-month-old from Brampton entered the charity event in Cambridge with her mum, Amanda, with the aim of raising £100 for Cancer Research UK.

They took their place among thousands of other runners and walkers on Jesus Green.

However, instead of completing the entire 5,000m course, Gabriella ran at the start of the race and again at the finish.
