No, it isn't November 5. But caught on a long exposure by the EDP's Matthew Usher, the dizzying Altitiude ride at King's Lynn Mart could easily be a giant catherine wheel.

For another night or two, the town's Tuesday Market Place will be a blaze of neon. After the crowds have gone tomorrow night, showmen will take down the fair ready to move on to Wisbech, its next destination.

For the travelling families, the show will literally be on the road for the rest of the year.

By Wednesday morning the market square will have reverted to its less glamorous day job as a car park for shoppers and town centre workers.
