The group, including Ryan Oldfield, Yorkshire’s current strongest man for 2015 / 2016, held a meet and greet for shoppers at the centre, before taking part in a series of events throughout the day.

Cheryl Sadler, centre manager, at Lakeside Village, said: “We loved welcoming the strong men to Lakeside Village. Throughout the day they wowed our customers with a number of events including a car dead lift, tug of war and atlas stones.

“The events were refereed by Mark Anglesea, two times Guinness World Record holder, who holds the world record for the most amounts of lifts of a car in one hour.
