The Wet Bandits were this year’s winners at the ever popular Finchingfield Grand Three-Legged Race.
Matthew Wood and Keiron Woolley raced to victory in the challenge which sees punters tour the village’s pubs and twice take a dip in the pond.
Crowds gathered to watch the race, which is now in its fifth year, on bank holiday Monday and enjoy the sunshine.
