He's behind you! Accountants in panto horse outfit win charity 'National'.

A RACE by 21 pantomime horses across Aintree's Grand National fences raised more than pounds 7,000 for charity.

Hundreds of spectators enjoyed the Not So Grand National at the world-famous racecourse in aid of the Claire House children's hospice on Wirral.

The competition was organised by Liverpool's Finch Advertising, with each horse sponsored by a Merseyside business.

Brian Millrine and Tim Corcoran, of Warrington's Brookson accountancy won, followed by Andrew Collinge hairdressers and Liverpool Residential Beat in third.

Tim Crutchley, of Finch, said: "It was a beautiful day and everyone had a fantastic time."
