Coxheath, Kent - Saturday, May 22nd 2010: Joel Hicks of Leicester covered in custard during the World Custard Pie Championships at Coxheath near Maidstone, Kent. His team, The Modern Family, were eliminated in the semi-finals. The first championship was held in 1967 in Coxheath using a special custard recipe developed by Richard Hearn aka Mr Pastry. The championship is made up of teams competing in heats, semi finals and the final, with the number of pies available per team increasing from 5 in the heats to 10 in the final. 6 points are scored for a direct hit on the face, 3 points for the shoulders or upwards, 1 point for any other part of the body, and points are deducted for misses. A discretionary 5 points can be awarded for the most amusing and original throwing technique. The event is part of the Rotary Club funday. (Pic by Andrew Tobin/SLIK Images)
