A record number of decorated vintage machines will take to the roads around Harleston at the weekend for the annual Ladies' Tractor Road Run.

More than one hundred tractors will leave Thorpe Abbotts airfield at 11.30am on Sunday for the 7th rally that will raise thousands of pounds for breast cancer awareness and research.

Hundreds of people lined the streets of Harleston and the surrounding villages last year to support 93 Pink Ladies, which generated �32,000 for Cancer Research UK.

This year, 115 women have signed up for the popular 20 mile circular drive, which will take them through Brockdish and Harleston at about 12.30pm.
