An ice skating display has been held in memory of an 11-year-old from Birmingham who raised thousands of pounds for Cancer Research UK.

Harry Moseley was a special guest of Coventry Market in the summer where he sold his handmade bracelets to raise money to help find a cure for cancer.

He raised £500,000 in total from his Help Harry Help Others campaign and died from a brain tumour in October.

A memorial gala was arranged in his honour at Blue Ice Rink, Solihull.

The Midlands Figure Skating Club wanted to hold the event in Harry's memory to raise money for his campaign Help Harry Help Others Cancer Research UK.

The Skate for Harry Memorial Gala had 20 live performances that started at 16:30 GMT, including one from the British men's figure skating champion David Richardson.

Harry rose to prominence on Twitter when he was diagnosed with cancer in 2007.
