A familiar figure had a read of his favourite paper when he popped in The Three Crowns in Oakham to promote a charity competition.

Tamed racing driver The Stig visited the pub in Northgate, Oakham, which is holding the event from midday on Sunday, October 25. It has teamed up with gaming seat company GamePOD to run the competition, where the winner will receive a driving day experience.

GamePOD has provided a special gaming seat for the event and people will be able to actually race around the official BBC Top Gear test track, as seen on the BBC programme.

Proceeds on the day will go to the Hope cancer charity.
