Thousands of people attended a food and drink festival in the Ribble Valley which celebrates Lancashire produce.

More than 100 exhibitors were on show at the third Clitheroe Food Festival, which organisers said attracted 17,000 people last year.

Matthew Fort, the star of BBC TV's Great British Menu and who is from Clitheroe, hosted the event.

It also featured a fringe programme with food trails, chef demonstrations, a Mad Hatters tea party and fireworks.

Nigel Haworth, of Northcote Manor, Langho and Ribble Valley Inns, led the celebrity chefs who did demonstrations at the show.
