    Tinsley Green pub hosts world marbles championship

    Dozens of marbles players from as far afield as the US and Algeria descended on a Sussex pub for the annual British and World Marbles Championships.
    Nineteen teams with six players met at the Greyhound Pub in Tinsley Green for the Good Friday event.
    It has been held there since 1932 and follows in the tradition of the game dating back to the 16th Century.
    The team winners were 1st MC Erzgebirg from Germany - who had taken the world title five times previously.

    The village is reputed to be the scene of an epic marbles battle in Elizabethan times over the hand of a local maiden.
    Tournament organiser Julia McCarthy-Fox likened the game to snooker, but without a cue.
    "It's quite interesting to watch as there's a lot of skill when you get a decent level of play.

    Fascists dress in black and go around telling people what to do, whereas priests... more drink!
