There has been a flipping good time in Great Yarmouth this afternoon as the town held a pancake race.
Eight teams took part in the town centre races as about 100 people looked on and cheered as participants ran, flipped, stumbled and in some cases fell over.
Taking part in the race was a team from the Great Yarmouth Mercury and EDP office, which reached the semi-finals.
The winners were a joint team from Greggs and Swinton Insurance who received a golden frying pan as an award.
The award was handed out by town mayor Malcolm Bird, whose wife Donna took part in the races.
