Cruise To The Prom was held at the Beach Lawns on Saturday, with more than 450 VWs on show as hundreds of pounds were raised for a life-saving organisation.

A huge range of cars and vans were on show, as the group cruised en masse from Sanders Garden Centre in Burnham to Weston's seafront.

The event has been running for more than a decade, collecting thousands of pounds for good causes.

Weston RNLI was chosen as the event's charity this year, and the organisation benefitted to the tune of £1,311.

Each year, the organisers award the Spirit of Clive award in memory of Clive Allen - who was instrumental in the event's early years - and on Sunday that prize was handed to Joe Chadney.

He received it from last year's winner Jason Swan.
