More than 1,200 visitors flocked to Rectory Fields on Sunday to see over 1,000 vintage and classic cars and motorcycles with the number of vehicles on show also setting a record.

The tenth annual Ashover Car & Bike Show raised more than £15,000 for charities and was held on the hottest day in the event’s history.

Chesterfield, Matlock and Chesterfield Scarsdale Rotary Clubs ran the event which Peter Beardsley of the organising committee said was a great success.

Prizes for the best car and best bike were presented by the president of Matlock Rotary, Tom Moloney. The winning car was a 1966 5.2 litre Chevrolet Sting-Ray, owned by Corrin Mellor. The best bike was a 1947 350cc Velocette Racing motorbike, owned by Mark Bellamy.
