A flipping good time was had as more than 50 people enjoyed Swaffham's pancake races.

Nine teams of two competed to be crowned champions with local community groups and businesses getting involved.

The event, which was organised by the Swaffham Lions, saw one member of each team run along half the course before tossing their pancake and continuing on to meet their partner who would then do the same.

They were egged on by a bumper crowd as they raced up and down the market place.

Swaffham Lions activities chairman Dennis Tallon said: 'Everyone really enjoyed themselves, they were roaring with laughter and shouting and cheering on their teams.

'The whole purpose was to celebrate pancake day, things have died down on that front and we thought we would bring it back and engage with community groups while having a bit of fun.

'The weather has been spectacular and it has made for a really good day.'
