In pictures: Lincolnites get into the Red Nose Day spirit

This story is over

People all over Lincoln will today be wearing red noses and dressing in red in support of Red Nose Day 2017.

Red Nose Day is a charity event held every two years to raise money for Comic Relief to help people living in the UK and Africa.

People can also tune in to a host of star-studded TV specials from 7pm on BBC One, including a highly anticipated sequel to the movie Love Actually.

Here are some of the Red Nose Day highlights our Lincoln readers have sent in:
