SLIDESHOW: Easter Egg Run bikers make pit-stop at Amble

It was quite a sight as more than 1,000 bikers roared into Amble during yesterday’s charity ride through Northumberland.

The colossal convoy called in at the Friendliest Port for a spot of lunch or a portion of fish and chips as they made their way round the county collecting Easter Eggs to be distributed to children’s hospitals in the region and cash for the Great North Air Ambulance.

There were Easter bunnies, fancy headgear, Star Wars masks, a gorilla and the odd Muppet as riders got into the spirit of the event, which has become an annual fixture for organisers Blyth Valley Motorcycle Action Group (MAG).

Bikers came from all over the North East to take part and group chairman Katalina Ferguson was delighted with the turn-out.
