Members of the public braved the wet weather to watch the parades of the Weeping Sisters, including the new Syrian sister, created by local people, refugees and students in Kirklees.

The seven giant 12ft high Weeping Sisters puppets remember the lives lost in the Holocaust and other genocides around the world.

Friendship through Puppets was inspired by Creative Scene and the 6 Million+ Charitable Trust.
