Families flocked to an annual community festival in Mile Cross.

The threat of rain which followed a morning of sunshine did not stop people from supporting the 35th Mile Cross Festival at Sloughbottom Park today.

Youngsters sat in police cars and fire engines while there was a rodeo bull, zorb balls, inflatable slide, stalls and games at the event.

Richard Edwards, chairman of the festival, said: 'Its to bring the community together and have fun but also to get involved in different community events around the city and in Mile Cross.'

Marion Maxwell, Lord Mayor of Norwich, attended the event and said it was 'nice to see the people coming out and supporting it.'
