Hundreds gathered in the centre of Wymondham this morning to witness a popular festive tradition.

Excited youngsters and families gathered in the heart of the town to see hounds and horses arrive for the Dunston Harriers' traditional Boxing Day meet.

More than 20 horses and a pack of hounds arrived in the town at around 11am, as part of the generation spanning tradition.

Joint master Nigel Bloom thanked the crowed for braving the frosty temperatures to come out.

He said: 'Our meet would not be the same without the support from the people of Wymondham. Thank you to each and every one of you, who have turned out on a chilly morning to see us all.'
