Magnificent machines from the early days of motoring to the modern era filled Reepham's Market Place for a day which drew petrol heads from far and wide.

The fifth annual Reepham Classic Car and Bike Festival drew thousands of people keen to marvel at everything from a 1909 Stanley Model K 'Steamer' to a sleek 2018 Ferrari Spider.

Visitors strolled among the vehicles at the 'American Classic'-themed event and took advantage of outdoor food stalls, while rockabilly band the Hal Wrayzer Combo played in front of the Kings Arms pub.

Antoinette Ford, 70, was there displaying her 1938 Pontiac called Chummy.

Mrs Ford, from Hockering, said: 'It's a great atmosphere. I'm a 1940s re-enactor so I bought this because I wanted a car from the same era.'
