A railway station cat has completed a 5km fun "run", raising more than £5,200 for a children's charity.

Felix, who shot to fame as Huddersfield Station's pest controller, began the challenge in support of Fairy Bricks on 12 August.

A GPS tracker was attached to her collar to track her distance.

Andy McClements, of TransPennine Express (TPE), said: "The team here could not be prouder of our resident senior pest controller."

He added: said: "Ever since the beginning of the year when Felix was propelled to superstardom, she's gathered quite a following on social media who track her daily exploits and adventures through Facebook."
