An Australian couple, who are visiting to watch the Ashes, are taking a detour to Whitehaven to see a special statue.
It's of Ron Looney, the former Cleator cricketer and gurning legend.

They kept in touch with Ron Looney Jr, and decided to make the trip to the Copeland Centre in Whitehaven to see the statue.

We had never seen or heard of such a competition before. We looked it up and there was all of these people pulling funny faces.”
