Bikers from across Cornwall are expected to take part in this year's Martin Jennings Memorial Run when it takes place this Sunday in an adapted format.

The annual event commemorates the life of Beacon man Martin Jennings, who died in the 1987 Manx Grand Prix on the Isle of Man, as well as all other Cornish riders who have lost their lives.

An estimated 1,200 bikers took part in last year's run, which usually always culminates in a ride through Falmouth ending at the rugby club.

However, this year Dave Saunby, who has organised the ride since the first event in 1988, has developed a 'rolling run', with riders joining at various locations, to help keep people safe in the current conditions.

He said: "Because this year being a 'rolling run' there will be no masse gathering at the start, the run will keep moving from the beginning to the finish, where the run will then disperse, so there will be no official gathering at the end.

"This is to comply with the current legislation regarding large gatherings."

Riders must adhere to social distancing legislation and face masks should be worn at times when not wearing a helmet.
