It may have been April 1st but this was certainly no April Fool's Day stunt. Around 100 bright yellow cars drove in convoy through the quiet picturesque Cotswold village of Bibury.

They arrived in a show of solidarity. Around one hundred yellow cars of all shapes and sizes and of all makes and models beeping their way through Bibury.

And it wasn't just brightly coloured cars that turned out. There were villagers in their waders and bikers dressed as bananas.

The cars and crowds had gathered to show their support for Peter Maddox, the pensioner who's own yellow car first caused complaints in 2015 for ruining photos of the picturesque village.

Then 8 weeks ago the car was vandalised with the word 'move' scratched into the paintwork prompting the 84 year old to replace his car for a grey one.

But today came the defiant declaration of support bringing a smile to Peter and his family's faces.

There is in fact another yellow car in the village. Jo White runs the local pub and bought the exact same model around the same time as Peter.

Such was the success of today's procession there's already talk of making it an annual event. Whether it becomes an annual event or not, today's convoy certainly brought some colour to a little village in the Cotswolds.
