Winner declared at World Pooh Sticks contest in Witney
A new winner has been declared in the World Pooh Sticks Championships, held in Oxfordshire.
James Smith from Long Hanborough won the contest on the River Windrush at Langel Common, near Witney, on Sunday.
Inspired by AA Milne's classic Winnie the Pooh books, the world-famous event involves racing sticks under a bridge.
It is the first time the competition has been held at Langel Common after "logistical problems" meant it had to move from its usual location.
The event started in Little Wittenham 32 years ago but an increase in its popularity meant the original spot on the Thames at Day's Lock was no longer suitable.
Organisers, the Rotary Club of Oxford Spires, eventually settled on the bridge, which links Witney with Cogges Manor Farm, a filming location for ITV drama Downton Abbey.
