The style of the sixties was everywhere to be seen at the Tuesday Market Place in King's Lynn as the Mods and Rockers, Scooter and Motorbike Meet returned for a second year.

Organiser Abbie Panks said: 'It's lovely people are coming along and telling their stories. Regardless of whether they have a bike now or not it's just nostalgic. It seems to be something people take to their hearts.'

She said around 600 bikes were at the event.

Awards went out to a number of categories including best motorbike, best scooter, best British bike and best custom bike. This year a Thunderbirds-themed bike won the peoples' choice award.

Proceeds from the event will go to SERV Norfolk, a charity run by volunteers which transports urgent medical items to hospitals.
