Cornwall gets its crimp on.

The Mining and Pasty Festival is being held in Redruth this weekend.

It will feature everything from baking competitions to a play about the miner who sold his wife.

Last year, the town produced and sold almost five thousand oggies.

Mayor Will Tremayne said: "Pasties, particularly, are something that people are very passionate about. Mining, it is something - we're very proud of our historic connections with it and you can see it in the landscape everywhere so both elements are incredibly important to Cornwall as a whole.

"The excitement within the town, over the last couple of weeks, has been building and building and people are really quite, almost at feverpitch. Although it's not a particularly old festival in Redruth, it's something that has been thoroughly adopted by the town and I think people are very proud."
