SHOPPERS were stunned as a flash mob landed at Sanderson Arcade.

The five-minute dance took place last Thursday as part of a global event to raise awareness of violence against women.

The Morpeth event was led by dance teacher Angela Noble, of Tribe Zuza, who teaches tribal-style belly dancing.

Most of the dancers were women from her classes, as well as their family and friends.

The flash mob performed a routine choreographed by Debbie Allen, of Fame, to music by Tena Clark.

After launching into the dance at Morpeth at 1pm, the group hot-footed it to Newcastle for a much larger performance by women from across the North East.

The event was organised as part of the One Billion Rising campaign for V-Day, a global activist movement to end violence against women.

The group says that one in three women worldwide will be beaten or raped during their lifetime, adding up to more than a billion victims.

Flash mob dances were held in several countries to show support for the campaign.
