LeedsLast Friday, to celebrate the longest day of the year, the Yorkshire Post brought together its journalists and some readers to create a video which would offer a 'snap shot of life in Leeds and around Yorkshire'

The video was the final part of the title's  Longest Day initiative,  which aimed to give 'readers a glimpse behind the scenes at what makes Leeds tick' as part of the paper's broader Summer of Love scheme.

The video included film taken across the city centre, in selected 'scenic backdrops' outside the city and in key cultural venues including the Royal Armouries.

Reporters chipped in with 30 second videos from jobs they were working on around the city while  readers were encouraged to share their images of what constitutes a bustling working city.

Andrew Hutchinson, YEP digital editor, said: “Our journalists have been out and about recording some aspects of life in Leeds and the surrounding region.

“From sunrise to sunset we’ve been capturing some of the ordinary – and often special – moments that make up a typical day.

“Some recorded a few seconds’ footage as they were out reporting on a job while others took some spur of the moment shots on their smart phones.

“And our army of readers have joined in sending us short clips showcasing what Leeds means to them.

The video can be seen here.
