Here are some photos taken by our editor
Todd O'Neill when he took part in the 2002 Royal Shrovetide
Football event in Ashbourne, Derbyshire, UK.
Todd: "Sorry for the unusual angle on some of these
photos but since I'm a little guy I had to hold the camera
over the top of my head and point it in the general vicinity
of the action. I wouldn't recommend taking a camera into
that sort of environment unless you expect it to be crushed
beyond the point of recognition."
