Crowds gather for Tissington's well blessing


About 5,000 people have gathered for the annual blessing of the wells in a Derbyshire village.

The ancient tradition of well dressing is celebrated in Tissington in the spring, with plants and flower petals being used to decorate the well heads.

Themes for this year include The Queen's Diamond Jubilee and the centenary of the sinking of the Titanic.
