A Weston motorbike event attended by thousands of people has raised more than £10,000 for the Royal British Legion.
The gathering, which takes place at the Beach Lawns once a week on a Thursday, has been running since 2008.
Bikers were charged a fee of £1 to take part, and, in total, they raised more than £10,200 for the charity, which supports veterans of the British armed forces.
Organiser Lyn Lovell said this year's event started on April 25 and ended on September 12.
She said: "It was pretty amazing, we raised a lot of money for the legion which I'm very pleased about.
