It'd put your 'beard' to shame

If you thought the hurling was exciting, wait until you see this.

A tightly-contested facial hair competition took place in the UK over the weekend.

The British Beard and Moustache Championships happened in Blackpool with impressive beards and well-groomed moustaches taking centre stage.

More than 200 competitors from around the globe took part in the event on Saturday, which is run by a Blackpool bearded men's club.

The contest has 21 categories including Freestyle, Handmade Creative, Natural and under 16s.
