A downpour of rain could not dampen the spirits of the people who turned out in force for the Scorton Bikes and Barrows festival.

A washout on Sunday meant the outdoor music festival had to be rescheduled to Monday instead, which had far better weather.

But organisers said they were delighted with how the popular event – now in its fifth year – has gone so far.

Annie Collinson, chairman of the Scorton Millennium Committee, which organised the festival, said: “It was a good day on Saturday, when we had around 60 exhibits.

“It has been excellent – there has been a really good effort.” Other attractions at the event, which ran from Friday until Bank Holiday Monday, included a 10km race, bike rides and a treasure hunt, as well as food and craft fairs.
