Scarecrows are a big draw in popular village

Tourists to Thornton-le-Dale at the weekend had a big treat – the village’s second annual scarecrow festival.

More than 60 comical characters were created by residents and traders, and were perched in gateways, public benches, hedgerows and on grass verges to the amusement of hundreds of families.
