TYNE Valley residents were stunned to see a convoy of supercars pass through their villages.

A convoy of contemporary and vintage Porsches, BMWs, Lotuses, Aston Martins and a Mustang Bullet toured the district after starting off in the village of Humshaugh.

And it was all in aid of Tynedale Hospice at Home in memory of supercar enthusiast Ken Norton.

His 12-year-old grandson Fenwick organised Grandpa’s Glorious Gallop, which saw the supercars stop off at Ken’s favourite spots in Tynedale, a year on from his grandfather’s death.

And the event topped the £1,000 mark.

Fenwick said: “Tynedale Hospice at Home is an amazing organisation who help poorly people and their families during some of the most difficult stages of illness providing the highest levels of care, support and dignity to all concerned.”
