Hundreds of people have gathered in Manchester to mark the 200th anniversary of the Peterloo massacre.

Performances recalled the pro-democracy gathering of 60,000 people which ended with the deaths of at least 18.

The centrepiece came at 13:30 BST when the names of those killed in a cavalry charge at St Peter's Field were read out.
