Puppet parade to mark 70 years of Pelham Puppets

Giant puppets and marionettes have taken to the streets of Wiltshire to celebrate 70 years of Pelham Puppets.

Bob Pelham began making the world-famous toy in Marlborough in 1947.

At its peak, the business had a turnover of £1m and employed around 120 workers.

To mark the firm's anniversary, scores of puppets paraded down Marlborough High Street as part of a two-day festival.
