Birthday boy Jack Robinson got the perfect present at the Tall Ships Regatta.

The Blyth youngster met his favourite film character, pirate captain Jack Sparrow, on board the Tall Ship Shtandart.

Jack was celebrating his seventh birthday at the Regatta yesterday and couldn't believe his luck when he came face to face with his namesake, played by Johnny Depp in the smash-hit films Pirates of the Caribbean.
