There have been some sore heads in the Somerset town in Bridgwater today after the end of the annual carnival.

100,000 people lined the streets. Organisers describe it as the largest illuminated carnival in Europe. People dedicate all year to making the carts - and the day after the carnival is now known as Black Sunday as people celebrate the end of the event - and their hard work.
