A group of bikers has raised more than £32,000 to help wounded service men and women at the armed forces rehabilitation centre in Surrey.

Nearly 100 members of Harley-Davidson motorcyle group Surrey Chapter UK raised the cash for Headley Court, near Epsom by crossing River Thames bridges.

They crossed the bridges between Tower Bridge and Hampton Court on 16 May, escorted by police outriders.

The cheque is being presented to Headley Court on Thursday.

The bikers stopped off during the day-long fundraiser at the Royal Hospital, Chelsea, where several Chelsea Pensioners tried out the bikes.
