Hundreds of excitable pixies invaded Ottery’s town centre as the town hosted one of its most colourful and energetic events of the year.

Residents enjoyed a host of fun activities at Ottery's Pixie Day event, including Taekwondo demonstrations and ferret racing.

Later that evening, the Pixies' Revenge commenced, with the the town's youngsters recreating a 400 year old tale. The pixies hollered their way through the Ottery streets and captured the bell ringers and took them to their cave.

Richard Coley, organiser of Pixie Day, said: "We had a lovely Saturday and we were very lucky with the weather.

"We had a jolly good crowd in the afternoon, and the attractions - such as ferret racing - was quite attractive. When we cleared up after the event, we had enough people on hand to help, which is always a bonus!"
