An exhibition exploring the contribution black people made to Cumbria's history has gone on display.

Cumbria's hidden heritage is a collection of documents from the 18th and 19th century looking at the men and women who made Cumbria their home.

The exhibition, at the Archive Centre in Carlisle, highlights Cumbria and south-west Scotland's involvement in the slave trade.
