Week in photos: The images you must see

The Man Engine, the largest mechanical puppet ever constructed in the UK, is unveiled during a final dress rehearsal of the ‘Afterdarker’ ceremony ahead of the start of his Resurrection Tour in Cornwall, England. Last seen in 2016, to mark the 10th anniversary of the Cornwall and West Devon Mining Landscape being added to the UNESCO list of World Heritage Sites, the 11.2-metre-tall puppet will start his tour at the Cornish Mining World Heritage Site landscape on Saturday, before travelling to other iconic industrial heritage sites in Cornwall, Devon, Somerset, making various stops in South Wales before heading for Shropshire, Yorkshire and Durham.
