A Minion, Scooby-Doo and Tommy Cooper have all been spotted in Rennington, as the village's annual scarecrow festival started today.

The event, which is also being held tomorrow and Monday, features a whole host of eye-catching creations and highly-creative scenes, including a MasterChef-themed display. There is also a nautical scene called Small Ships Regatta Rennington 2016 - which is a take on the Blyth Tall Ships Regatta, which is taking place this weekend. The scarecrow festival is raising money for the village hall and church.
