There's been an increase in the number of people taking day trips to Maldon in Essex.

The area - famous for its annual mud race - saw visitor numbers rise by 13.2 percent

This means the value of tourism to the District is more than £182 million - more than was generated during the Olympic year of 2012 - and supports over 3,200 jobs.
