THE streets of Doncaster were awash with colour as one of South Yorkshire’s most spectacular processions came to the borough.

The annual South Yorkshire Legal Service was held at Doncaster Minster, bringing some of the county’s most senior legal figures out onto the streets for the High Sheriff’s procession through the town.

People lining the streets to watch the annual event saw red gowns and lawyers’ wigs as those taking part in the procession made their way from The Mansion House to Doncaster Minster on Sunday morning.

When they arrived at the minster, they joined a religious service at the venue, which is Doncaster’s largest church.

The procession is usually held in Sheffield, but this year was in Doncaster, and tourism bosses had publicised it in advance as a tourist attraction.

A council spokesman said officials had hoped lots of people would come out to watch the pomp and ceremony of the annual procession.
