The centuries old tradition of the Shrove Tuesday football game in the meadows below Alnwick Castle, also known as "Scoring the Hales" came around again today. The ball was thrown from the castle in time honoured fashion by the Duke of Northumberland. I happened to be in the area with the trusty Panasonic HX-WA10EB-K so grabbed a few clips of the goings on.
Oh yes, something I learned today from a guy we were chatting to was that Pippa Middleton is apparently dating the heir to the Duke of Northumberland, George Percy. Looks like it's true, The Telegraph certainly thinks so!
