This week we have seen some great images submitted by our readers through iwitness24 - our image-sharing website.

Our favourite photo of the week was taken by Ernest Bocho, depicting one of the riders at this year’s Weston beach race. Ernest commented: “two days of sand in teeth... :)”.

We’ve seen plenty of eerie photos of the recent blood red sun, such as those sent in by Elsie Poynton, Ruth Hibbert and Adrian Burke.

Included in our top ten is a great capture of the recently revamped fountains in the Italian gardens taken by Mark Anstee.
