PUDSEY tried parkour when two Colchester students came up with a novel fundraising plan.

James Thompson, from Myland, and Jayde Hubbard, from Highwoods, made a YouTube video featuring themselves doing the extreme sport with Pudsey Bear watching and even trying some jumps.

The couple, both aged 18, made £36 for Children in Need when pals sponsored them for what is thought to be the first of its kind for the charity.
