Ipswich punters went on a mission dressed as the action hero, to raise funds at a casino night.

The event, at the Brewery Tap, was in aid of Murray Rangers Football Club, whose players are among the pub's regulars.

Around 170 people attended the event where instead of cash prizes, there was a weekend luxury cruise and a television set up for grabs.

People tried their luck on two roulette tables, a black jack and a dice rolling table. There was also a buffet and raffle.

Publican John O'Sullivan, said: "Everyone had an enjoyable evening. People dressed up from the James Bond movies and the girls were dressed as characters such as Miss Moneypenny.

"We did it because the Murray Rangers are regulars in our pub and we wanted to do something to help them."

He is thinking of making it a twice-yearly or annual event.
