Escapologist and street entertainer AJ James was wowing crowds in Huntingdon on Saturday as part of fun day hosted in the town.

Members of the public were invited to help bind AJ in padlocked chains before he was tasked with wriggling his way free, to the delight of dozens who gathered to watch him perform.

There was also face painting, balloon modelling and a host of street performers in action on the day, which was organised by BID Huntingdon.

A similar series of events last year saw popular performer Bendy Em and as well as African tribal dancers appear in the town.

Sue Bradshaw, BID Huntingdon manager, said: “The weather was absolutely lovely and it was great to see so many people enjoying the event.”
