A Kent MP tosses pancakes for charity in Westminster

Tracey Crouch led the race after the first lap

A Kent MP has been taking part in a pancake race outside the Houses of Parliament for charity.

Tracey Crouch, Conservative MP for Chatham and Aylesford, was part of a team of MPs racing against teams from the House of Lords and the media.

All money raised will go to Rehab, a charity which aims to help people with disabilities lead independent lives.

The race in Victoria Tower Gardens was started by ITN newsreader Julie Etchingham.

Three teams take part in the annual relay race; MPs, Lords and members of the Parliamentary press gallery.

This year, the pressure between the teams was intense as the MPs sought to win for the second year running. The Lords and media teams were the winners in 2009 and 2008 respectively.

This year, the Lords' team were successful in collecting the Rehab Parliamentary Pancake Race Magnificent Tin Cup.
