A snapshot of Lancashire life was captured on camera today as the Evening Post marked the year’s longest day.

Evening Post journalists, photographers and their colleagues were joined by members of the public in shooting short films showing a slice of their day, as part of our Summer of Love campaign.

A compilation of the results of the film project, Longest Local Day, has been compiled for our website, lep.co.uk, and will be uploaded over the weekend.

Among those taking part were Lancashire’s police and crime commissioner Clive Grunshaw, filmed at work in his office, University of Central Lancashire student Jack Coverdale telling jokes, and Quwatal Islam mosque members attending Friday prayers at their place of worship on Peel Hall Street, Preston.

The idea was inspired by Hollywood director Ridley Scott’s documentary Life in a Day, which showed hundreds of clips sent into YouTube users of a moment in their lives on the same day.

Evening Post associate editor Mike Hill said: “We were really impressed with how our readers got involved and sent in such a variety of clips.

“The results gave us a smalll insight into how people in Lancashire spend a typical day in many different ways.”
