A film in which about 500 people in Lincoln mime to two Take That songs has been premiered.

Lincoln Lipdub, organised by BBC Radio Lincolnshire, was shot at the High Bridge and Castle Square, on 13 July.

Volunteers gathered early on the day to record Shine and Never Forget which has been edited into one shot.

People got the chance to watch the first showing of the film at the Lincoln Drill Hall on Monday.

It has now been uploaded to social media channels.

BBC Radio Lincolnshire's managing editor Charlie Partridge said the idea was to recreate the atmosphere when the Olympic torch passed through the city in 2012.

He said the event was about "celebrating our community" and getting everyone together.

As well as Radio Lincolnshire presenters, the film also features dancers, sea scouts, mods on scooters, runners and a cricket team.

Longwool sheep even appear in the final scene at Lincoln Cathedral, with people using their bodies to spell the name of the city.

Watch the film in its entirety on the BBC's YouTube channel..
