Redcar's Fire and Steel Festival

More than two thousand people are estimated to have lined the seafront for Redcar's first Fire and Steel Festival, which featured a light parade, concert and fire sculpture.

The event was timed to mark one year since the mothballing of Teesside's last blast furnace and comes amid hopes it will soon reopen.

Organisers say they are already planning an even bigger festival next year.
