Ever since its creation, the Mini has had a special place in British popular culture.

And scores of owners brought their cars to Lynn’s Tuesday Market Place for the returning celebration of the classic model.

Visitors were able to admire around 150 examples of the iconic car throughout its six decades on the production line.

The vehicles were judged by West Norfolk councillor Brian Long and popular radio host Simon Rowe, who chose the car displayed by Karen Cooper, of Ely, as their favourite.

Members of the public also get their chance to vote for the people’s favourite. That prize was won by Aaron Pidgeon from Holbeach.
