Although Christians Together in Winslow was unable to organise its annual Walk of Witness for Good Friday, due to the coronavirus restrictions, the town's three churches still found a way to mark one of the holiest days in the Christian calendar with a moving ceremony.

People were able to line the High Street as the cross passed by, accompanied by a single representative from each of the three churches - St Laurence Church, Winslow Christian Fellowship and St Alban's Catholic Chapel.

The procession ended with a prayer in the churchyard, led by Winslow's rector, Rev Andrew Lightbown.
