There's been some flipping good fun in Salisbury today (Tuesday February 13th), as the city marks Shrove Tuesday.

For the 6th year St Thomas's Church has organised the International Pancake Race alongside the Trussell Trust to raise awareness of poverty, homelessness and social exclusion.

14 teams have been battling it out to be crowned Salisbury's best flippers - with some great costumes among the competitors as well.

WEATHER DIDN'T DAMPEN SPIRITS:

The windy and wet conditions this morning had an impact on the race.

Organisers St Thomas Church moved the event from the usual venue on the High Street.

The races took place in the Cloisters at Salisbury Cathedral instead.

That location was chosen as it's undercover and more sheltered from the wind and rain.

WINNERS TAKE THE GOLDEN FRYING PAN: 

The teams took part in heats to whittle down the top racers and flippers, before a final battle to take the coveted title.

The Harnham Scouts took the crown, and the prize, sponsored by Cote Brasserie.
