Footage of this years’ cheese rolling contest in Gloucestershire, UK. A special Jubilee edition of the ‘race’ took place today (June 5) in the Gloucestershire town of Brockworth, near Gloucester. There were several injuries, including a reported broken leg.

Participants race down the 200-yard-long hill after a round of Double Gloucester cheese is sent rolling down it. The event was traditionally held by and for the people who live in the local village of Brockworth, but now people from all over the world take part. The event is thought to be around 600 years old.
