Motor fanatics and charity fundraisers will come together for a BBC Radio Devon event on Plymouth Hoe.

The motor rally will showcase a variety of classic vehicles while raising money for this year's charity, Children in Need.

Last year, about 120 vehicles attended the event with about 3,000 people present.

It raised hundreds of pounds for the Devon Air Ambulance Appeal.

Presenter David Fitzgerald and his AC Cobra will attend this year's rally.
