Shrove Tuesday brought to life.

PANCAKE-TOSSING clowns, caped crusaders, medieval maidens, big babies and overgrown lemons brought a distinctly Shrove Tuesday spirit to Huddersfield town centre.

Eight teams took part in a madcap pancake race organised by Huddersfield Retail Association.

The winners were W H Smith, with Wheatley Dyson's second. The Big Babies from Ryans toddled to third in the race and were best in the fancy dress competition.

Local charities were to benefit from the race.
