PC Grayson, of Normanton and Featherstone neighbourhood policing team, chomped his way to the top in the pie eating contest in the culmination of a day of events at the Pontefract farm.

Bernie Weston, one of the festival organisers, said: “It was a bit windy but it was a really good day, there there were loads of people there and everyone enjoyed themselves – and the pie eating contest was spectacular.”

Around 4,500 people attended the event on Sunday, which included brass band entertainment, children’s activities, dog displays, food and craft stalls, hog roast and vintage tractor display.

There were also produce competitions and the Axe Games, which included welly wanging, won by Simon Hall, and the Austrian nail game, won by Corban Nichol.
