Thousands of people attended demonstrations across the region over the weekend in support of the Black Lives Matters movement.

On Sunday 14 June, protestors gathered in Millennium Square in Leeds to listen to speakers calling for an end to inequality.

One demonstrator explained; "It's time to call these things out and bring change".

There was a large police presence to keep counter-protestors separate from the Black Lives Matter protest.

In Huddersfield around 1,500 people came together in St George's Square before marching through the town towards Greenhead Park.
