A number of records tumbled in the David Harper-Tarr Cumbria Athletics Association Track and Field Championships.

Some 178 athletes took part in the annual event at the Sheepmount in Carlisle amid glorious sunny weather.

Border Harriers won the overall team event while individual records were broken by several talented young athletes from the county.

Amy Johnstone starred in the under-13 girls’ 100m and 200m.

She set new championship records in both with times of 12.8 seconds and 26.9 seconds respectively.

In the latter case, Johnstone broke a record which had stood since 1982.
