BBC North West news presenters have got up off their famous red sofa this week – and are pushing it through the region for Children in Need.

Roger Johnson, Annabel Tiffin and Owain Wyn Evans were joined by BBC Lancashire's Graham Liver as they kicked off their tour of the North West.

These pictures, taken by Rury Lushman, show the group on Audley Range in Blackburn on Tuesday as they pushed on through Lancashire.

Every year the BBC team undertake a new challenge to raise funds for the charity.

They were in Cumbria on Monday, Greater Manchester on Wednesday, and Merseyside on Thursday.
