An estimated 6,000 runners pounded the streets of York as part of the Jane Tomlinson 10K charity fundraising event.

The first runner to cross the tape was James Bulman, in 32 minutes and 38 seconds.

About 30 roads in and around the city centre were closed for the race but were due to reopen at 14:00 BST.

Entrants make their way past the Minster, Clifford's Tower and the Shambles street.

It is the sixth time the event has been staged in York.

Event lead Keith Taylor, of Run For All, said: "The York 10K is one of the highlights of our season. Runners, supporters and volunteers always turn out in force."

Mrs Tomlinson, from Leeds, undertook a series of fundraising sporting challenges after being diagnosed with terminal cancer, in 2000.

She had raised more than £1.5m by the time of her death in 2007.
