Hull Freedom Festival celebrates ninth year

Nearly 73,000 visitors flocked to Hull's international arts festival at the weekend, despite heavy rain.

The city's three-day Freedom Festival explored historical and modern concepts of freedom through music, street theatre, arts and comedy.

More than 200 performances by artists from 30 countries took place around the city's Fruit Market.

Organisers said they were "thrilled" by the turnout, but rain on Saturday meant lower numbers than last year.
