Hundreds of people have taken part in a cycling event in a Sussex coastal town which saw cars give way to pedal power.

A section of Worthing seafront between Wallace Avenue and Grand Avenue was closed to traffic as part of Big Bike Sunday.

Visitors were able to use their own bikes or try out more unusual cycles such as tandems and trikes.

The day was part of the three-day Worthing Carnival which is being held for the first time this year.

One of the organisers of the cycle day, Duncan Kay, said: "It went really well.

"We had a couple of hundred people take part. Everyone from six months to 80.

"There were lots of children riding around on the road in safety without traffic.

"Enough people seemed to have a very good time so we hope to do it bigger and better next year."
