Girls from Belper District Guides joined in a huge sleepover with a difference - as they spent a night snoozing in the shadow of roller coasters and white-knuckle rides at Drayton Manor Theme Park.

The youngsters, all aged between 10 and 14, were among more than 370 Guides from across the Midlands who joined the girls-only event at the attraction near Tamworth.

Group member Abigail Roberts, aged 14 said: “It was a brilliant trip. One of the best parts was being able to go around the park when no-one else wasthere, all the public had gone home and it was just open for us. The whole event was fantastic, the food, the disco, the rides - everything!”
