Fitness fanatic Sergeant Shelli Gordon ran her way to victory last week when she was the first woman out of the ladies who participated to cross the finish line at the 11.2 mile PSUK Police National Fell Race.
Shelli, 38, is from the Cleveland and Durham Specialist Operations Unit and has competed in many running races in the past and over the years she has raised thousands of pounds for charity.
The race took place on Wednesday 18th May from Cod Beck in Osmotherley and followed a route past the Lyke Wake Stone, then back across, towards and up Black Hambleton, Square Corner, Oakdale and then back into the woods to finish at the reservoir.
Shelli also competed for the third time in The Hardmoors 160 Mile challenge which took place on Friday 29th April to Sunday 1st May.
The challenge took her an impressive 41 hours and 22 minutes to complete.
Speaking of her achievement, Shelli said: “This year the route was different as it was in reverse because of Tour de Yorkshire.
“I felt really good after the race and I even took my daughter to a horse riding event the next day – and I returned to work the day after that!
“I love to run and I love to challenge myself as it gives me chance to think in the peaceful countryside and I love the adrenalin you get from competing.”
Shelli is also planning to compete in the Ultra Trail Mont Blanc in France in August which is 160km and 30,000ft of ascent.
Hero Cops save girls life of girl who wanted to kill herself
Two fast-thinking police officers have helped saved the life of a girl who text her mate saying she wanted to end her life. Officers were quickly alerted and began searching for the girl.
The officers were alerted to the incident in the early hours of November 14, when Police Constables Daryl Jones and Mark Bullock, from Southend’s Local Policing Team, were patrolling Southend.
With the clock against them, the officers began searching the area and found a girl who matched the description. She had walked four miles from her home alone after sneaking out in the middle of the night and was on her way to Southend town centre to harm herself. The pair pulled over and approached the girl cautiously.
Upon seeing the officers, the girl broke down and became upset. Daryl and Mark reassured her that they were there to help her. After calmly engaging with the girl, the officers managed to negotiate with her to get in the police car so they could get her out of the cold and talk to her.
She spoke openly with Daryl and Mark about the difficulties she had been experiencing and how she had text her friend in the hope that the friend would get help for her.
She thanked the officers for finding her so quickly and the pair reassured her that they would get her the further help she needed.
Daryl waited with her whilst Mark made a difficult call to her parents to inform them of the situation and that their daughter had not come to any harm. Her dad thanked the officers for finding his daughter so quickly and ensuring her safety.
The girl was taken to a mental health suite for assessment and her parents thanked the officers again for finding their daughter so quickly and getting her the help she needed.
Daryl said: “I’ve never seen more of a genuine reaction for help from someone than when the young girl broke down when she saw myself and Mark and knew we were there to help her.”
Mark said: “We were just fortunate that we were in the right place at the right time and were able to locate her and help her, I have no doubt if we hadn’t of found her it would have been a different outcome.”
Stabbed police dog Finn inspires charity Christmas card and Police Hour are proud to have helped
A Police Dog who was stabbed while chasing a suspected thief has come together with Police Hour to inspire a Charity Christmas Card.
Not just any Christmas Card these cards have been specially designed and drawn by a very brave nine-year-old boy with cancer named Alex Goodwin.
German Shepherd Finn was stabbed on 5th October in Stevenage, His Handler PC Dave Wardell was also injured.
Alex was as devastated when he read that Finn and PC Wardell has been attacked. Alex began drawing pictures of Finn so the idea of a Christmas card was created and they sold out within one day.
Police officer’s son Alex is undergoing chemotherapy for Ewing Sarcoma, a type of bone cancer that affects fewer than 30 children in the UK each year. He faces further “complex” surgery at Christmas.
There is now a change the law regarding attacks on police dogs and horses. Please make sure your sign it.
