IT WAS one giant celebration in Lostwithiel as revellers saw 2014 in with a parade of larger than life characters.

The traditional giants' parade weaved its way through the town joined by lantern bearers and musicians, which included a bagpiper and drummers. Crowds of families joined in the party.

Amateur photographer Daniel Stringer, who is just 13, was there to capture the spectacular display.

Resident John Pegg was among the revellers. He said everyone had fun and it stayed dry during the procession. "It just seems to happen but a lot of work goes on behind the scenes."
