They may have been dancing in the summer at dawn on May Day (May 1) but the hardy members of Yateley Morris Men still had to de-ice their cars.

However the cold start did not stop a good smattering of visitors joining the Morris Men at Wyndham's Pond, off Cricket Hill in Yateley , at 5.35am for the traditional dance to welcome in May.

For around 40 years Yateley Morris Men have danced at dawn on the first day of May.

They were joined, as usual, by the 'World Famous Yateley Horse'.

Four dances culminated with game members of the audience being 'persuaded' to join in a finale and the Morris Men singing the traditional May Day song.
