Over 2,500 Minis enthusiasts attempt to take on the world record for the most Minis to be parked together to celebrate the British motoring icon's 50th birthday.

The annual drive - now- in its 46th year - sees owners of classic and modern Minis coming together to show off their vehicles.

A spokesperson for the event said: "London to Brighton Mini Run is the biggest and best Mini event in the show calender.

"Taking place each May it attracts entrants from all over the world, and it is a fantastic opportunity for owners to show off their pride and joy, and the public to take in the spectacle o around 2,500 Minis as they make the 55 mile pilgrimage."
