colourful creations soared above the south Leeds skies this weekend.

Members of the Northern Kite Group brought together kites from across the country to Middleton Park.

A giant blue whale, a purple octopus and a giant purple spikey-haired bear were just some of the spectacles that could spotted in the sky at the lake at Middleton Park on Saturday.

The showcase was put together by the Northern Kite group which was established in 1978 .

Members from the committee attend a whole variety of kite festivals across the country and the world.

The showcase in Middleton was the first of its kind.
