Teams from Crown Paints, The Bridgewater pub, The Bee, 2BR, K9, Mr Fu’s, The Bob Inn and the 105th Manchester Scouts took part in the two-hour relay around Church Street, Croft Street and Market Street.

The Scouts were crowned the winners and runners-up, with Crown Paints third. Darwen Town Council mayor Trevor Maxfield said: “Once again it was a tremendous success.

I had to laugh at one of the Bob Inn team members pedalling around with a roll up hanging out his mouth ! Another one didn't get half way around before he nearly collapsed with exhaustion ! Still it’s the taking part that counts !!
