High praise for your Longest Day video

THE unique magic of summertime in Hartlepool has been captured on film and there is still time to watch the final product.

Friday was the longest day of the year and the Hartlepool Mail used the Summer Solstice to put together what 24 hours looks like in the life of the town in a mini-movie.

And you gave us a helping hand in putting together the film featuring a wide-range of people, businesses and locations.

We were also lucky enough to get the help of Hartlepool band The Jar Family who were more than happy to get on board and sent us their fantastic track Poolie Strut to use in the video.

The final version has gone down well with readers, who were quick to take to social media to praise the project including:

Jane Bradley@janekbradley I’m prob biased – I’m from Billingham originally...;-) Loved it though-and soundtrack was great;

Sam Mowbray@sammymoggas loved the #longestlocal day vid! As a poolie expat it made me homesick and brought back great memories #poolietillidie;

Beverley Glover@Hollow_Woman 22 Just watched the video. It was so good my eyes filled up at the end. Boy, have you done us proud! So impressed #longestlocalday;
