Ready, steady, run, says iconic rabbit Gus Honeybun
The crowds went under starter's orders at the weekend for one of the wackiest races the Westcountry has to offer.
A pretty harbour in Dorset was the scene of the Great Lyme Regis Christmas Pudding Race.
It marked the second staging of the fun race which invites festively dressed teams to carry a Christmas pudding around an obstacle course. En route, the teams have to complete an array of Christmas-themed tasks while at the same time having to build a Mr Potato Head on the pudding.
Sending the competitors on their way was TV and radio star Judi Spiers, who was accompanied by the very first Gus Honeybun, the fondly remembered iconic rabbit mascot for the former Westward TV.

The Lyme Regis event was one of three Great Christmas Pudding Races being staged to raise thousands of pounds for Cancer Research UK. Organiser Philip Evans said they had raised £2,600 in sponsorship before the event got under way and overall they hoped to top last year's total of £4,000 with a donation of more than £5,000 to charity.
