A special "Jubilee cheese" was the top prize as rebel cheese rollers took part in a bizarre local competition to chase an 8lb piece of the dairy product down a steep hill.
Hardcore thrillseekers staged their own unofficial event after the world-famous Cheese Rolling was officially cancelled in 2010.
Competitors took part in four races down the 1:2 gradient slope - three men's races and a women's - with the final men's race held with a "Jubilee cheese".
