A Spanish village has held its annual baby jumping festival in which men dressed as the devil hurdle children under one year of age lying on mattresses in the street.
The celebrations in Castrillo de Murcia, near Burgos, northern Spain, date back to 1620 and are in honour of the Catholic feast of Corpus Christi.
The yellow-suited devil-men, known as El Colacho, leap over the babies in a ritual believed to protect the village's youth from evil spirits.
Some of the babies appeared relatively relaxed about the prospect of being hurdled by a devil-man.
Others, like the one on the right here, were more reluctant.
