Miles and smiles as Caroline Quentin & Co take to the road for air ambulance
Actress Caroline Quentin led a fundraising event at a Victorian gothic mansion in the Westcountry.
The actress, who lives on a smallholding in Devon, got on her bike to raise funds, along with Olympic equestrian Mary King and Lady Penny Mountbatten, for the Devon Air Ambulance Trust.
The high profile names joined friends and supporters of the charity yesterday at Huntsham Court, near Tiverton, Mid Devon, for the 30-mile cycle ride.
One of the charity's two helicopters made a special landing at the property ahead of the race's start at 10am.

Caroline Quentin, who lives near Tiverton, said: "I've known Huntsham Court for years, and it's an amazing Victorian private mansion with a great ethos – the perfect place to hold any charity event."
