WINNERS of a giant game played in Taunton have been announced.

In June, the town was involved in the Beat the Street initiative, where players had to walk, run, scoot, wheel or cycle between the 37 beat boxes around Taunton.

These were all half a mile apart, and players tapped fobs or cards as they went - earning points as they travel.
