Royal Ascot racegoers galloped past the winning post in the fashion stakes as Ladies’ Day saw a sea of weird and wonderful hats – including one from a Suffolk nurse.

Nothing was too outlandish for some of the female guests, who wore everything from jungle scenes to bottles of champagne and even a lobster on their heads.

Lindsay Anderson, 57, had onlookers doing a double take with her champagne-themed top hat complete with a horse jumping over the brim and two champagne flutes.

The senior staff nurse, who works at West Suffolk Hospital, said: “I found all the little bits and pieces yesterday and put them together last night.
