Summer festival season starts in Leicester

A Kristna community in Leicester is celebrating after its temple was replaced following an explosion four years ago.

Their annual festival at the Iskcon Temple is one of a series of summer celebrations in Leicester.

The dozen festivals, including the Belgrave Mela and Ride Leicester Festival, have been combined to create one event that promotes all the open spaces in the city.
