Vicky Clissett fought through the pain barrier to pull a Mitsubishi Shogan around a car park in memory of her friend.

Laura Westbrook, 22, was killed in a car crash on the A3 on September 15 last year as she made her way from Whitman Laboratories where she worked with 31-year-old Vicky.

After weeks of training, Vicky pulled the car 10 times around the car park of the factory, until she’d reached a mile. The feat was to raise awareness for the road safety charity, Brake.

Afterwards, a memorial bench in memory of Laura was installed at the Bedford Road plant.
