The sound of pealing bells was heard in Worcester during Saturday as the national bell-ringing competition took place at its cathedral.
Nine teams from across England were taking part in the 12 bell competition throughout the day.
The competition, which is in its 32nd year, was held at Worcester Cathedral for the first time.
It featured teams from Birmingham, Bristol, Norwich, Stockton, York and London, including St Paul's Cathedral.
Susan McLeod, from Worcester Cathedral's chapter office, said: "The Cathedral's bells are regarded as the one of finest peals in the country.
"However, they are also the hardest to ring because of their weight and considerable frame and tower movement."
