Thousands Watch The Cheese Rolling Competition In England

SUBSCRIBE:

THIS is the bumpy new perspective of England's historic annual cheese-rolling contest. Thousands of people gathered on Cooper's Hills near Brockworth in Gloucester to watch revellers chase a block of double cheese 200 yards down a hill. One of the contestants wore a pair of glasses fitted with a video camera to capture the madcap action - which dates back to the early 19th Century. An estimated 5,000 people turned out to watch thrill-seekers chase a 3.5kg (8lb) wheel of double Gloucester cheese down the 1:2 gradient hill. Despite the huge number of people taking part, surprisingly, no serious injuries were reported.
