Archbishop of York holds open-air baptism
More than a dozen people have been immersed in a pool of water during open air Easter baptisms by the Archbishop of York.
Archbishop John Sentamu conducted the ceremony in a specially erected pool outside York Minster which was watched by more than 300 people.
It was organised by One Voice York, a network of churches across the city.
Church officials said the total immersion represented a person's death of their old life.
