Church bells rang out across Kent in a show of solidarity after the Notre Dame fire.
It comes after the Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby, asked cathedrals and churches across England to toll their bells for seven minutes as a mark of respect after the 850-year-old Paris cathedral was ravaged by a blaze.
The devastating fire on Monday evening brought down the roof of the Gothic building and caused its steeple to collapse.
The show of support, which was also called for by John Sentamu, the Archbishop of York, started at 7pm.
A number of churches across the county including Canterbury Cathedral, Rochester Cathedral, St Botolph's in Northfleet and St Aidan's in Gravesend have taken part.
Five bell ringers also turned up at Holy Trinity Church at Queenborough on the Isle of Sheppey to join in.

They were led by tower captain Val Reckless.
The Archbishop of Canterbury also offered his prayers on the night of the blaze.
On Twitter, he said: "Tonight we pray for the firefighters tackling the tragic Notre Dame fire - and for everyone in France and beyond who watches and weeps for this beautiful, sacred place where millions have met with Jesus Christ. Nous sommes avec vous."
