WATCH Alnmouth Raft Race

Waiting for Video...

Slideshow of photographs

Maurauding Vikings invaded Alnmouth on Saturday as they powered their way to victory in the annual raft race and this followed an earlier attack by the Zulus who won the junior event.

Hundreds of people gathered to watch the thrills and spills of both races - there were 14 Senior and 6 Junior entries.

The first Alnmouth Raft Race took place in the late 1970s, since when it has raised tens of thousands of pound for the RNLI and they are organised by Brennan Shell, landlord at the Sun Inn.

Photographer Terry Collinson was there to capture all the action.
