Twenty photos of life during lockdown have been chosen from over 250 entries to go on a video with UB40.

The winning image of the 2020 Lockdown Photography Competition was by Jack Crook of a deserted dual carriageway.

Judges included Robin Campbell and Earl Falconer from the Birmingham reggae band, city council leader Ian Ward and West Midlands mayor Andy Street.

The photos were taken before any restrictions were eased.

The contest was facilitated by People Matters Network, an organisation that runs community-led collaborations and helps to deliver social value.
