Tonight is Light Night when Leeds city centre landmarks are illuminated and bathed in sound.

Lasting 12 minutes, a projected display created by a team of four creative light and sound experts - locals Will Simpson, Julian Lasson, Lee J Malcolm and Tom Hopkins - took onlookers through a journey of changing white shapes to haunting music.

The 10th Light Night, spearheaded by Leeds City Council, starts tomorrow at 5pm.
