Freemasons on march in Derry

Freemasons have paraded in the centre of Londonderry for the first time in almost 20 years.

Despite a march of a matter of yards — from the Freemasons Hall in Bishop Street to St Columb's Church of Ireland Cathedral — they had to apply to the Parades Commission.

A police helicopter hovered over the city centre as 400 Freemasons made the journey for a service to mark the UK City of Culture.

Freemasons from throughout Ireland took part in the procession and service.
