RECORD numbers of vehicles took part in Wisbech and District Historic Vehicle Club's 15th annual road run on Sunday.

Organisers were delighted when the crowds turned out to see 177 vehicles make their way from Wisbech to Peterborough and back again for a static display in St Peter's car park.

The club's road run co-ordinator Mick Ramsden, said: "It was the most vehicles we have ever had with numbers of commercial vehicles and scooters also up on last year. It was a great day and the weather stayed nice for us."

Vehicles must be at least 25 years old to take part in the event. This year the oldest vehicle was a 1927 Lagonda Tourer - a last minute entry from a Spalding owner.
