Have your say

SCHOOLCHILDREN had a flippin’ fantastic time in Leeds as they took part in the city’s annual pancake race celebrations.

The event was held a few days earlier than usual this year as Shrove Tuesday falls during next week’s half-term holiday.

But that didn’t stop the youngsters having their normal king-size helping of fun at the races, which were staged in the historic Church Yard of Leeds Minster this afternoon.

Pupils from St Peter’s Church of England Primary School lined up alongside choristers from the famous Choir of Leeds Minster and children from the Minster’s Junior Church and Sunday School.
