Burwell staged its annual carnival on Saturday and despite less than seasonal weather a bumper crowd enjoyed the festivities and helped raised thousands of pounds for local good causes.

Villagers lined the route as the parade made its way to the new carnival on the recreation ground where thousands soaked up the atmosphere as the stage entertainment, field displays and funfair went into full swing.

Carnival King and Queen, Ned Newman and Kitty Mann, handed out the prizes to the best float winners helped by attendants Saskia and Caden Fusniak.
