Organisers called the World Gravy Wrestling Championships "one of the world's craziest culinary competitions".

Contestants at the event in Lancashire had to wrestle in a shallow pool of gravy for two minutes.

Nicole Taylor-Lyons, 20, triumphed in the female category while Joel Hicks - also known as Gandalf the Gravy - reigned supreme in the male category.

Now in its sixth year, the championships took place in Rossendale.
