The Morris Minor Owners Club show parked-up at the Imperial Recreation Ground, with around 800 people viewing the vintage vehicles.

Car clubs and individual owners gathered to display more than 300 motors -including Morris Minors, Aston Martins, BMWs and Volkswagens, along with a range of motorbikes.

All money raised on the day went to the Devon Air Ambulance Trust. The total is yet to be confirmed.

John Tilley, a member of the Morris Minor club, said: “It was a very successful day. We had a better turnout this year than last and I would like to thank all the car clubs, bike clubs and all the individual car owners for making the day a successful one for the Devon Air Ambulance Trust.”
