Around 7,000 people turned out to the town’s Chantry Park today to enjoy the event, which is put on by Ipswich Borough Council (IBC) and is in its third year.

Mark Whiting, commercial manager for IBC, said: “It was a brilliant event and the weather stayed kind to us and the sun shone all day.

“We had around 7,000 visitors, which makes it the biggest and best Ipswich Wheels yet.

“There were so many attractions, including stunt riders and displays, but once again Slingshot seemed to be the star of the show.
