"Hundreds of people descended on a Cheshire village for the annual Worm Charming World Championships. Charmers come from across the globe to Willaston near Nantwich, to try and encourage worms to come out of the soil.
The event has been held in the village for more than 40 years, and has seen a world record. This year's winners were the Jones and Weaver families who said they were "very proud" to take home the trophy.
The current world record is held by 10-year-old Sophie Smith, who charmed 567 worms out of the ground at the 2009 event.
IFCWAP president, Gordon Farr, former headmaster of Willaston School, said: "I think this is the nature of the British public - they are eccentric by nature, but they don't always show it, but every now and again at an event like this it comes to light."
All the best Jan
