VIDEO - Acklington Scarecrow Trail

The quiet Northumbrian village of Acklington was invaded by some weird and wonderful scarecrows at the weekend.

The hand-crafted creatures were part of the village’s scarecrow trail where visitors were invited to go around and spot all 26 of the straw-filled creations. Mary Poppins, Boris Johnson and characters from the Wizard of Oz were among those dotted around and visitors were invited to vote for their favourites. Pictures and story on the Gazette website.
