The streets of Preston were alive with colour as judges and dignitaries took part in the city’s annual procession of judges.
The historic procession is called the Judges’ Service. The colourful parade happens annually in the city to mark the official start of the legal year.
The march was watched by scores of shoppers who looked on as high court judges and magistrates made their way towards St John’s Minster on Church Street, escorted by police.
The judges wore full robes and wigs for the procession, which was also attended by the Mayor of Preston, Veronica Afrin, and other members of Preston Council.
After a short service at the church the procession returned to the court house.
