Hundreds of Christians, Jews and Muslims joined together in Oxford for a walk promoting peace.

It was the fourth friendship walk held in the city and started at the Oxford Jewish Centre, in Richmond Road.

The group walked on to the University Church of St Mary the Virgin, High Street, and finished at the Central Oxford Mosque in Manzil Way.

The Rev Charlotte Bannister-Parker, a curate at the University Church, was one of the founders of the walk, which began in 2003 on the eve of the transfer of power in Iraq.

She said: "Because it was so successful we have had it every year since.

"Each year it has grown and each year the commitment has been unbelievable and our patrons now include the Bishop of Dorchester, Rabbi Norman Solomon and the Imam from the Central Mosque.

"The essence is to show people that we can live together in our communities and pray for peace and honour each other's differences."

Prayers were held at each location and refreshments were served at the mosque.
