A boy picks up a burning barrel soaked in tar at the annual Ottery St Mary Tar Barrel festival on November 5 2013 in Ottery St Mary, Devon, England. The tradition, which is over 400 years old, sees competitors (who must have been born in the town to take part) running with burning barrels on their backs through the village, until the heat becomes too unbearable or the barrel breaks down, starting with junior barrels carried by children and continuing all evening with ever larger and larger barrels. The event, which has been threatened with closure on previous years, raises thousands of pounds for charity and attracts spectators from around the world.
