A well-known charity motorcycle run in Cornwall has been postponed because of the threat of bad weather hitting the county.

The annual Martin Jennings Memorial Run has been staged 23 times and attracts hundreds of bikers.

The event was started in memory of Martin Jennings, from Camborne, who died in an accident while competing in the Manx Grand Prix in 1987.

An estimated 1,300 bikers took part in the event last year.

It is believed to be one of the biggest motorcycle charity rides in the UK.

Since the event began it has raised thousands of pounds for local charities.

Organisers postponed the event due to concerns about severe caused weather caused by remnants of Hurricane Katia.

They said they hoped the run would go ahead on Sunday 18 September.
