LOOK North reporter Tom Ingall carried out the judging at the first day of Kettlewell's hugely popular Scarecrow Festival - which this year is celebrating 100 years of the BBC.

The ten day festival, which kicked off at the weekend and will run until Sunday, August 20, includes 180 scarecrows of all shapes and sizes, all a result of the lively imaginations of the villagers.

They include Dr Who, SpongeBob SquarePants, Paddington Bear and the Clangers - along with a whole lot more. Winners of the much coveted 'best in festival' prize were Allan, Rachel and Bruce Turnstall with an amazing medley of scarecrows.

A spokesperson for the event, which raises money for the school, the church, and village hall, said: "As always the village hall is serving amazing cake, home-made soup and sandwiches, and the organisers have tried to keep prices as low as possible; parking is £3 and a trail map is £1, so a family can enjoy the beautiful village and weird and wonderful scarecrows for under a fiver."
