People in Wirksworth had a wheely good time on Saturday as the town held its annual wheelbarrow race.

The event, which took place on Saturday, sees pairs of participants running a one-mile course, with one person sitting in the wheelbarrow and the other pushing.

But they have to stop at seven pubs along the way and down half a pint of beer at each one.

What could possibly go wrong?
