The Compere and starter was Danny Steel of Lowestoft Vision who was pleased with the great turn out and support from businesses in the town.

He said: "I'm really pleased with the way things have turned out today. 

"We had 14 teams, which is excellent, who braved the weather, and the mascots of course. It was really good."

This is thought to be the tenth year that Lowestoft Vision has organised the annual event and it has gone from strength to strength.

This year teams were also entered by Lowestoft Town Council and Associated British Ports.
