Carlisle Cathedral has hosted an event to celebrate the contribution of migrants to UK.

The Cathedral is one of a number of venues across the country to sign up to the 'One Day Without Us' national day of action.

People were invited to tie multi-coloured ribbons to the main gates.

Organisers were keen to point out the positive role migrants play in all walks of life.

26 percent of NHS doctors are technically migrants.

So this day is all about saying if all the migrants were actually to say we've had enough and are going back, as some people want us to do, the whole health service would collapse.
