Dozens of people came together in Norwich to join support for a global campaign against human trafficking.
The Walk for Freedom was held in the city on Saturday morning for the fourth year.
More than 100 people took part, wearing black with tape over their mouths to represent those who cannot speak for themselves.
The local event was organised by the Proclaimers church, which has bases in Norwich and Ipswich, while the global initiative is the brainchild of campaign group A21.
The walk means the fine city joined hundreds of others across the world taking part including Berlin, Paris and London.

Organiser, Gemma Neill said: We have had a really good turn out, and its really pleasing to see so many UEA students coming along.
'It is a striking image but we are trying to raise awareness that slavery is still an issue. We live in the finest city in the country but slavery affects every city.'
