I'm a lady - men in Wroot will be dressing up as women for the annual Wroot Drag Race.

The Wroot Drag Race takes place on December 27 and will see a host of men donning dresses and skirts and racing through the Isle of Axholme village for fun.

In previous years, male participants have also donned make-up, wigs and high heels for the event.

A spokesman said: "Come on guys, take part in the annual Cross Keys Wroot Drag Race.
