Thousands take part in 'dirty weekend'

Thousands of people have converged on Burghley House near Stamford for a dirty weekend. But it's not what you may think - the grounds of the house have been transformed into the longest and possibly muddiest, obstacle course.

More than 6000 people scrambled across 20 miles and 20 themed zones, conquering over 200 obstacles including the world's longest set of monkey bars and the longest cat crawl under netting.

"I think it kind of harks back to our inner childhood you know. People seem to really love it and certainly over the last couple of years people have very much embraced this type of event and this type of sport and leisure... There's plenty of water in the course, there are inflatables, things to jump off, plank walks, hay bales, lots of mud obviously and big scaffolding structures."
