Up to 10,000 spectators are expected to attend a beach motorsport event in a Kent seaside town.

Competitors from across the world are taking part in races for motocross and quad bike riders in Margate.

Organisers have created a course on the beach for the free two-day event, which is taking place in the town for the third year running.

Councillor Iris Johnston said the event had become a "great draw" to bring visitors to Margate.
