Thousands of people turned out to see the Spring Spectacular in Ramsgate today (May 29).

Families flocked to Government Acre for a packed day of events, headlined by the Drop and Roll Tour.

The stunt bike show, headed by Danny MacAskill, treated onlookers to flips and hops in the cycle arena.

The team had practised a few moves along the East Cliff before the show.

A crew from sports production company Sunset & Vine were filming the team, and visitors at the event, for a documentary.

The Spring Spectacular, organised by the Defence of the Nation Museum and RM Consultancy, also featured an amazing aerial display by a Spitfire and Hurricane.
