The World Coal Carrying Championships have been held in West Yorkshire.

Competitors are expected to carry a 50kg sack of coal for about three-quarters of a mile (1.2km).

The event, at Gawthorpe, near Wakefield, has been going for more than 50 years, as organiser Brian Wilding told BBC Look North's Dave Edwards.
