WATCH: Bamburgh sandcastle challenge

Waiting for Video...

A sandcastle competition, organised by Bamburgh WI, took place on the beach below the village’s famous castle on Tuesday.

Competitors built a selection of interesting and highly-crafted creations, which meant the three judges had a great dilemma in choosing the winning structure.

The clever design by Team Robert won the afternoon with a large heap of sand that from a distance looked like a very large castle but, on closer inspection, was composed from a family of hippopotami.

Every competitor was warmly praised for their magnificent efforts and encouraged to return to take part again in future years.
