A helicopter in the sky above Scarborough this afternoon (Saturday) is covering the P1 Powerboat Racing at South Bay.

Footage of the competition, which sees the boats battle it out at speeds of up to 70mph, is being filmed for broadcasting giants Sky Sports and Fox Sports.

Races got underway at 12.45pm and Southside was awash with spectators taking in the action in the glorious sunshine.

The day’s racing came to a conclusion at around 4pm and is set to resume at 1.30pm on Sunday.
