They often say good things come in small packages.

And the scores of enthusiasts that attended King’s Lynn’s first Mini Meet on Sunday would agree.

West Norfolk Council leader Brian Long said: “The Mini Meet was well attended for a new event, especially considering that the glorious weather tempted lots of people out to the coast.

“I’ve received lots of really positive comments about the event on social media, and on the day itself.

“A good number of us drove in convoy on the fish-and-chip run to Hunstanton, which was a fitting finale to the event.”

Mr Long, who owns a Mini Cooper, added the council hoped for the successful event to return next year.

Hundreds of Minis filled the town’s Tuesday Market Place.

Trophies awarded went to Christian Duncan who won the Judges’ Choice for his Mini Clubman John Cooper Works and the People’s Favourite went to Les Winkworth’s  1974 Mini pickup.
