Hot on the heels of a Northumbria officer being selected for the PSUK team comes another sporting success for the force, this time in cross country.

Temporary Sergeant Ian Ritchie, who is with the Force Improvement Team, has been chosen to represent the Police Sport UK at its annual cross country fixture against Prison Service and Fire Service colleagues.

This year’s event is being hosted by the Prison Service at the Prison Service College in Warwickshire.

We hope you’ll join us in offering Ian congratulations and good luck in his big race tomorrow, Wednesday, 22 November.

Ian, who is pictured taking part in the Great North Run, came 64th in this year's run.
