LOCAL mums came together to take part in an annual breastfeeding event at Locke Park.

Hosted by Barnsley Council on August 1, 33 children took part in the Big Latch On record attempt at Locke Park.

This year, 13,798 children latched on from 31 countries across the world.

Kay Bennett, from Barnsley Council, said: “It was wonderful to see so many mums feeding their babies together.

"Families made a huge effort to be there, many were accompanied by dads, grandmas and other supporters.

"It’s another step in our journey to make breastfeeding, especially in public, the norm."
