Easter procession through streets
Good Friday procession
Christians were asked to remember those killed in the July bombings
Hundreds of Christians have marched through London in a procession led by a man dressed to resemble Christ.

Marcel Croome wore a long white tunic and sandals, and carried a wooden cross from the Methodist Central Hall in Victoria Street to Westminster Abbey.

En route, it stopped off at Catholic Westminster Cathedral, signifying the unity between the different churches.

Archbishop of Westminster Cardinal Cormac Murphy-O'Connor asked people to remember innocent victims of our times.

"We remember the victims of atrocities committed by terrorists during the past year, especially those who died in the bombings here in London on 7 July," he said.

"We remember those killed in the Middle East, those who almost daily in Iraq lose their lives to terrorist attacks.

"We remember too the victims of natural disasters...we remember the thousands who every day die because of poverty."

Among the marchers were clerics, ministers and a child from a local school beating a drum.
