Cabbage hurling in Lincolnshire.

 Cabbages are being hurled from large catapult-like machines in what is claimed to be the first sporting event of its kind.

The hurlers are based on trebuchets, weapons used to fling projectiles in the Middle Ages.

Inventor John Ward made a pair for the World Cabbage Hurling Championships, being held in Lincolnshire.
