Walk of Witness: Pictures from the annual Good Friday service in Hartlepool

Parishioners from across Hartlepool gathered in the town today for the annual Walk of Witness.

Members of the town's six Catholic churches took part in the open-air celebration of faith in the town centre. The event is a key part of Hartlepool's Easter celebrations, and we were there to capture it on camera. Here are our pictures.
