The party, hosted by the Capel and South Suffolk Twins and Multiples Club, saw dozens of twins and twiplets get dressed up in a swashbuckling ninth birthday celebration.

Dressed up in their Jolly Roger costumes, the children made for a crew Jack Sparrow would be jealous of, transforming the Suffolk village into its own mini treasure island.

Organiser Fiona Farrell said: "It was a really good morning and full of fun, children were all lining up to get their pirate faces painted.

"There are lots of wonderful clubs for children in Suffolk, but it's different for parents of twins and triplets.
