Crowds turned out in their hundreds for the traditional annual proclamation in Rothwell - and our photographers were there too.

People followed town bailiff Robert Denton as he road around the town on horseback reading Rothwell’s ancient charter, which gives the town permission to hold a market and fair.

After each reading a scuffle takes place in which dozens of young people try to grab the halberds which are carried by the bailiff’s minders.
