Two motorcyclists who took to the road to raise money for breast cancer charities have presented a copy of their book to Rishi Sunak.

Liz Atkinson and Tina Oxley – nicknamed the Fairy Bikers – have written a book about their journey across 1,500 miles of United States.

They called in to Mr Sunak’s Northallerton office to give him with a signed copy and to ask him to help get it stocked in their local bookshops.

Mr Sunak said: “It was a great adventure for Liz and Tina and their account is very entertaining. I commend their decision to raise money for breast cancer research when they did the ride and also from the proceeds of the book.”

Tina Oxley, of Bedale, said: “We are very grateful for Mr Sunak’s time and support and also that of Peter Gibson, the MP for Darlington, in helping us with Waterstones in Darlington.”

After being contacted by Mr Sunak, Waterstones Northallerton agreed to stock the book and make sure it was available to order.

Lipstick and Leathers is published by Olympia.
