A Gateshead pub has held a hot dog eating competition to raise money for a charity in Nepal.
Fifteen volunteers from across Tyne and Wear tucked in to platefuls of hotdogs at The Central to help raise funds for the Pahar Nepal Trust.
Participants had to demolish as many hot dogs as possible in just ten minutes, with only a glass of water to help.
The pub's own barman Carmine Fortini hoped to take home the trophy for Gateshead, but was beaten by Ross Laing from Byker, who works at the Cluny in the Ouseburn.
Mr Laing demolished 11 hotdogs within the ten minute time limit to take the hot dog eating title.
The money raised during the contest will help the charity continue to build schools in remote areas of Nepal.
