Wacky Races had nothing on the eclectic selection of car costumes paraded through Newham during this year’s Under the Cars procession.

The brightly coloured ensemble made their way from Caravanserai to, aptly, the A13 Green beneath the Canning Town flyover for Friday’s fun-filled car-themed event.

Children were able to take part in free make your own car workshops led by Emergency Exit Arts in the days leading up to Canning Town’s answer to Under the Stars.

The event, organised by The Brick Box, also included a screening of A13: Road Movie which was created by filmmakers Rayna Nadeem and Stuart Bamforth, who live in the borough.

Live music was provided by vintage jazz band Shirt Tail Stompers while DJ Sonic manned the decks.
