These police officers have been sporting some extra hair in aid of charity.

PC Cameron Buchan and PC Dave Long are among around 15 from the Western Area Roads Policing Team, who cover Calderdale, who have been taking part in Movember.

The event encourages men to grow moustaches - or ‘mos’ - for a month to raise the profile and funds for cancers affecting men.

PC Buchan, who also lives in Calderdale, said: “It seems these days that everyone has a friend or family member stolen from them by cancer or knows someone who has been affected by it.

“Any research into cancer is a step closer to a cure and any charity that supports such research is worthy of support.

“Growing a mo is fun, easy and gets people talking - most often about the mo, but in the back of their minds they know what Movember is about.”
