THE Red Arrows did a fly-by of a North-East hospice to help it mark its 30th anniversary.

The aerobatic flying team, which was out to mark Sunday’s Great North Run, continued its flight above St Cuthbert’s Hospice in Durham.

Staff, volunteers and patients waited outside the hospice to watch the display.

The hospice is marking its 30th anniversary this year, including a midnight walk on September 22 – the day it opened.

A fly-by had been planned for earlier in the year but it was cancelled because of poor weather.

The charity, which provides care for people in Durham and Chester-le-Street, had a record 70 people taking part in the Great North Run to raise funds for them.
