A PET-loving Topsham woman who took part in the London Marathon has raised more than �1200 for the Dogs' Trust.

Rhona Hope, of Newcourt Road, completed the famous 26 mile event, which she decided to run in aid of the UK's largest dog welfare charity, in four hours and 49 minutes.

She chose to support the trust because of the special bond she has with her pet, Joey, a King Charles Cavalier Spaniel.

The 56-year-old senior manager said she thoroughly enjoyed taking part in the marathon.
