More than 100 people turned out today to watch the annual Shrove Tuesday pancake race in Scarborough.

After the mayor of Scarborough, councillor Andrew Backhouse, had started the festivities by ringing the Pancake Bell at noon 23 teams battled it out to try and claim the coveted Golden Frying Pan.

The competitors, in fancy dress, raced up and down the assault course in Aberdeen Walk, with the teams being judged on speed, their costume and their tossing ability.

In the final Playdale Farm, Stepney Hill Farm and Yorkshire Coast Homes were all in with a chance of winning and in the end it was Stepney Hill Farm who were crowned champions for 2014.
