Residents showed off their talents during a free photography competition run by the Salvation Army.

Striking nature scenes and people shots were among the 110 pictures taken by competitors aged from just seven to 80-plus.

The show was held at the Salvation Army’s church in Ripple Road, Barking, on Sunday.

Organiser Richard Ambridge said: “It was good to have so many varied images of such high quality from many different people.”
