An alternative Isle of Wight Race For Life has been cancelled just after the plug was pulled on the original event.
Cancer Research UK cancelled the official fundraising event which was due to take place at Seaclose Park on 29 July.
Disappointed Susan Plummer from Ryde had been due to take part in memory of the daughter of a friend who died of cancer earlier this year.
She decided to organise an alternative 5km route at Appley on the same date, on land owned by the council.
She says a requirement for forms and insurance mean the event will now have to be cancelled.

An offer to help host the event has been tabled by Ryde Inshore Lifeboat. The organisation already hosts an annual fundraising toddle at Appley. They are in contact with Susan and Isle of Wight Council.

Meanwhile, the Isle of Wight Council's offered to incorporate the event as part of an existing one. It's release this statement:
"We are inviting Mrs Plummer to hold her event as part of a weekly fun run the council organises at Appley Park each Saturday morning.
"This is an event that already has its own insurance and marshals. There is no need for Mrs Plummer to complete any paper work nor pay a hire fee so we hope this is a good solution for her and all those who plan to support this worthwhile cause.
"We appreciate that the paperwork event organisers are often required to complete can be daunting and we are happy to give advice in these circumstances. Our aim is not to make the hosting of events difficult but to ensure they are run safely for the benefit of all."

We've just heard that a deal's been agreed to stage the alternative Race For Life that will see organisers working with Ryde Inshore Lifeboat.
