Owner of the catering company, James Watts, said: 'No one loves pancakes more than children.

'The children had to roll up their sleeves and get their hands messy as they enjoyed making all of the waffle and crepe mixture.'

With the crepe rings sizzling hot, the children made their way to the converted horse box where Mr Watts, along with partner Fulvia, explained how the van used to have real horses inside. Then, while Mr Watts cooked the crepes, the children picked their toppings.
