Hundreds of people flocked to an art sale with a difference in Margate this afternoon.
The "art car boot" event saw new works from an array of local artists alongside those from big names including Margate's own Tracey Emin; Jim Moir - otherwise known as Vic Reeves - and Sir Peter Blake. The sale is a chance for the public to buy art directly from its creator.

And this is what the celebrities had to say about their day here:
The Vauxhall Art Car Boot Sale is taking place in Kent today, with names from the art world travelling to Margate to take advantage of the occasion.
Among the big names attending the event are the artist Tracey Emin, who grew up in the Kent town. The event, which combines a classic car boot sale and an art fair, was set up by Karen Ashton, who came up with the idea in 2004. Other artists taking part include Gavin Turk, Rachel Howard, Vic Reeves and Sir Peter Blake.
