Race fans flocked to Bonsall at the weekend as the village hosted the annual Hen Racing World Championship.

Saturday’s event saw people line the streets to cheer on their favourite feathered competitor in the long-held contest, which takes place at the Barley Mow.

Hen racing in the area goes back well over 100 years when local villages competed against each other in the summer for fun.
