Shrove Tuesday: 13 fabulous photos of Scarborough's traditional Skipping Day down the decades, including 1980s

Scarborough marks Shrove Tuesday every year with the Foreshore skipping, a tradition that goes back some 115 years.

Here are some great black and white photos, courtesy of Getty Images, from decades ago, and, from the Scarborough News files, pictures from the early 1980s - do you know anyone on those ? There are also pictures from 2015, 2016 and 2017.

Our main image is from 1954; this one is from 2015.
