More than 14,000 people have flocked to Ipswich for one of the country's biggest motorcycle shows.

Copdock Motorcycle Show started in a village hall 27 years ago - but now it sees Trinity Park packed with the sights and sounds of motorbikes.

The show is organised by just 19 volunteers and has now raised half a million pounds for local charities.

"There's a real camaraderie with motorcyclists. I can't think of anything more special than motorbikes.

"There's an old image of mods and rockers in the 70s but these days they're really friendly and probably older than you expect - and a real community."
