Nigel Phillips and Nunsford Nutters do the Axe Valley proud.

Carnivalites from the Axe Valley triumphed at Bridgwater Guy Fawkes Carnival on Saturday.

Nigel Phillips, of A and A CC, won the single walking class for the third consecutive year with his stunning entry Atlantis.

And those comic kings from Colyton, Nunsford Nutters, picked up third prize in their class with Properrr Job.

The wins are major achievements.

Bridgwater Carnival is considered the pinnacle of the illuminated carnival season, attracting the very best of entries from across the South West - and, sometimes, even further afield than that.
