Vintage sports car enthusiasts have been putting their vehicles to the test in the Lake District this weekend.

They climbed over 2,000 feet as part of an annual pilgrimage to Honister Slate Mine, racing cars from the 1920s and 1930s.

Cyclists struggle up Honister Pass

Competitors taking part in the Tour of Britain were given their biggest challenge yet when they were faced with tackling a very wet and windy Honister Pass in the Lake District.

The cyclists had to dig deep as they battled their way up the steep incline, which reached a 25% gradient in some places.
