Among the star attractions at this year’s event were Ford Transits which were 50 years old.

Adrian Fell, one of the organisers, who is this morning leading the clean-up operation, said: “It was a brilliant day, we had very good weather and a great turnout.

“Year on year the turnout has got better and this year we had more than 300 classic vehicles turn up on the day.

“We had over 1,200 vehicles and everyone seemed like they were having a great time.
