Vintage cars, tractors, engines and motorbikes pulled in crowds from across the east of England.

More than 400 exhibitors took part in the Aldham Old Time Rally, held in Chalkney Meadows, Colchester Road, White Colne, yesterday and today.

Military vehicles including a Second World War tank were also on show and visitors could also see craftsmen demonstrating their skills or buy specialist items from trade stalls.

The event, which has been running for nearly 40 years, is organised by the North East Essex Tractor and Engineering Club and Earls Colne Scout and Guide group.
