FORGET the Firby, XBox or Angry Birds game, the must have toy this weekend was the sledge.

And if you didn’t have one, the only option was to improvise, as this youngster did. He went sledging on a inflatable crocodile in Christchurch Park, Ipswich, and was captured by photographer Lucien Hughes.

Hundreds of families descended on the beauty spot at the weekend, sledging down the hills and enjoying old-fashioned family fun.

Lucien said: “I just thought these photos captured the atmosphere well.”
