It may be one of the oldest sports in the world, but in this unlikely UK locale, camel racing is the latest "new trend" that are making heads turn and residents gear up for the races.
According to the Daily Mail, camel racing has arrived in the UK's rural Somerset, attracting hundreds of spectators this week.
The humped-back animals made their UK debut at the annual Cotley Point to Point steeplechase that is held at Cotley Farm near Chard, with four racing for the win in this year's event.
