Vintage farming and industrial machines were on display at the Little Ellingham Vintage Working Show at the weekend to help raise funds for a vital life-saving charity.

Now in its 14th year, the show, near Attleborough, included demonstrations of steam threshing, steam-wood sawing, steam stone crushing and road making.

Over the two day event vintage cars, bikes and military vehicles were on display, and there were tractor and trailer rides on offer.

The show featured tractor displays, including ploughing and match ploughing, and heavy horses took over the main arena.

There was a display of sugar beet harvesting through the ages as well as vintage cars, motorcycles and military and commercial vehicles.

Last year, the show organisers handed over £8,500 to the East Anglian Air Ambulance and they hope to do the same again this year.

The show was set up by the Baker family after their daughter, Sarah, was helped by the air ambulance.
