Crowds descend to watch the annual barrel rolling in Beer

A barrel of laughs was had at the annual barrel rolling in Beer as part of the village’s Regatta week.

Beer Fore Street was closed off as teams rolled up to the start line to compete against each other and be the first to push their barrel up and down the street.
