Dalek draws a big crowd

Dr Who fans were in for a treat as a life-size Dalek replica made its way up and down Sandside on Sunday.

The Dalek belongs to Robin Cuthbertson and his son Connor, 14, who were raising money for Diabetes UK as Connor has diabetes.

Mr Cuthbertson said: “It was really good. We had the weather behind us and quite a few people came to have a look.”

The pair collected £220 and will be at the police box again this Sunday from 10am to 4pm. Everyone welcome.
