The Easter story was re-enacted in the streets of Sheffield to give residents an up-close and dramatic take on the tale.

Members of Christ Church in Stannington acted out four Biblical scenes around the neighbourhood on Good Friday, retelling the last days of Jesus and finishing with his resurrection.
