Roger Fry from Weston once again wins our weekly iwitness24 photo competition.

The theme last week was ‘sport’ and we were looking for any sporting pictures taken in and around Weston.

Roger’s great low-angle image of a falconer exercising his bird of prey with lure, is perfectly timed and sums up the sport brilliantly.
