Have your say

The first Ossett Beercart Festival saw morris dancers from across the country haul a decorated cart through the town centre.

The specially made ‘beercart’ was pulled from the Ossett Brewery on Saturday morning to mark the opening of a beer festival at Ossett Town Hall.

Wakefield Morris Dancers were joined by 13 other morris sides from around the country, while 42 different beers were available at the weekend-long event.

Proceeds will go towards Wakefield Hospice and next year’s festival.

People around the world are marking Earth Hour this evening. People in Britain are expected to join in at 8.30pm... and then they will switch their clocks forward tonight as British Summer Time begins.

Get ready to turn your clocks forward... but before that expect things to get much darker
