On one of the hottest days of the year, 200 people ran, jogged and walked around a Black Country park to raise funds for a sporting charity - and got covered in paint in the process.

The Blind Dave Heeley Colour Run was organised by The Albion Foundation, the charity arm of West Bromwich Albion Football Club.

The event is named after the foundation's ambassador who has raised more than £3m for the charity with various challenges, including walking along Hadrian's Wall last week.
