BURTON'S annual Statutes Fair has once again attracted thousands of fun seekers to the town centre.

Revellers of all ages packed High Street, Lichfield Stret, New Street and Market Place after the two-day extravaganza's official opening at noon yesterday by the Mayor and Mayoress of East Staffordshire, Cedric and Fay Insley.

All the fun of the fair - operated by Pat Collins Fun Fairs for more than a century - was due to continue today.
