Superheroes in force at comic book convention

Superman, Spiderman and the Incredible Hulk - they are just some of the characters that turned up at a comic book convention this afternoon.

The two-day event is being held at Wicksteed Park in Kettering, Northamptonshire. It has attracted hundreds of visitors from all over the country. Some of them even dressed up as their favourite super heroes and villains.

Visitors are being given the chance to meet some of the big names in the comic book industry, including Alan Moore and other writers and illustrators. The event organiser, Jeff Chahal, said: "It's a celebration of comics as a medium. We've got artists here from all over the world."
