Nine-year-old pirate Jake Williams led a colourful parade along the seafront that featured 38 entries from chimney sweeps to Diddymen.

The procession, organised by local fund-raising group the Appledore Pirates, was also headed by carnival queen Daisy Cox, 11, attendants Olivia Jones, and Rachel Quy, both 9, and fairy queens Leah Brent, 7, and Bryn Englehart, 10.

Carnival secretary Theresa Hammett said she hoped the event had raised a lot of money for local charities in the village.
