A Carlisle church has been unusually busy - all because of the Pokemon Go craze.
People have been gathering at Christ the King in Harraby, which in the Pokemon world is classed as a 'gym'.
The aim of the game is for players to meet up and take part in virtual battles with their Pokemon characters.
Michael Docherty, Parish Priest of Christ the King, says players are welcome to pop into the church.
We'd welcome any players. The church is open morning through to evening. They can pop in, light a candle you know refresh themselves after fighting in the gym... whatever that means.

The television presenter and former ITV Border reporter Richard Madeley is in our region promoting his latest novel.

He has based his new work of fiction, 'The Night Book', on his time living in Cumbria during the heatwave of 1976:
I just remember this experience as a young Londoner, an Essex Eastend boy, of falling in love with the Lakes. Just falling in love with the Lake District. I'd never been here before the weather was so incredible it was like being in the Italian Lakes. Windermere was like Como. I remember the Carlisle evening news headline Windermere warmer than the Med. The Lakes heated up in a superheated summer. It was almost a magical time for me.
