Hundreds of people lined the streets to watch Axbridge Carnival on Saturday, which featured floats, walking entries and crowning of the Carnival Queen.

A spokesman for the event said: "Axbridge Carnival was brilliant.

"There was such a lovely atmosphere felt in the square on the day and lots of walking entries took part in the procession.

"There were fairground rides, vintage vehicles, and Burnham & Highbridge mayor Andy Brewer attended as well.
