A castle on the Isle of Wight is hosting a medieval jousting event on its grounds.

The bowling green at Carisbrooke Castle has been transformed into a tilt yard where knights charge at each other on horseback at 30mph (48.28 km/h) in armour worth up to £25,000.

Stacey Evans, also known as Sir Edward Stacey, has been jousting for 13 years and called the competition the "Formula 1" of jousting events.
