Scarborough will provide the backdrop for a huge military battle - in miniature form.

The Scarborough Wargames Club and Gaming Club Network are holding a War Torn Weekend on Saturday, June 30 and Sunday, July 1.

The event, at the Spa, will feature a number of tournaments and games, as well as trade stands and a bring and buy sale.

Gamers will come from as far away as Scotland and London for the weekend, with at least 17 gaming clubs represented.

Kelvin Pickup, who is helping to organise the event, said places were still available for people to take part in games.

Doors open at 10am on both days.
