The inaugural Big Norfolk Sausage Bash, held at Aylsham, welcomed visitors and traders from all over the region.

The festival brought together food stalls, demonstrations, local brewers and producers of some of the finest sausages in the county and beyond for one day only. A number of stalls had even sold out before the day had finished.

Jason Gibbons of joint organiser Coxford's Butchers, based in Aylsham, said: "It's gone better than we thought it would be and the day has been absolutely manic.

"Without a doubt, we are planning to return next year."
