News in pictures: Norman battle at Happy Mount Park in Morecambe

Happy Mount Park echoed to the sound of swords and shields but it was all in the name of entertainment.

12th Century re-enactment society Historia Normannis brought the world of 900 years ago back to life in Morecambe with a mix of combat displays, humorous historical presentations and talks, knight training and fun for all the family.
