Singers celebrate York's charter
Eight hundred people have walked, singing, through the streets of York as part of celebrations to mark 800 years since York was granted its royal charter by King John.
The Ebor Vox, composed by Benjamin Till who created the BBC Symphony for Yorkshire, is one of a number of celebrations in the city throughout 2012.
On 9 July 1212, King John granted the charter which allowed the city to elect a mayor and council, and govern itself.
At the 800 celebrations, Lord Mayor of York Keith Hyman said: "York is just so resilient. Many people are struggling but when you see the crowds turning out it's just amazing how people love it here."
Heavy rain led the council to postpone the Charter Weekend Flotilla on 7 July. The council said it hoped to reschedule the event later in the year.
