A blue torch passed through Lancaster as part of a national journey to raise awareness of mental health support for emergency services workers.

On Tuesday the torch, part of the HM Prison service’s Our Blue Light campaign, was handed to HMP Lancaster Farms before it was taken on a walk through Williamson Park guided by the blue light from the Ashton Memorial.
