The photographer Stuart Redler has launched a search to find a British twin town for Timbuktu (right) in Mali. The quest coincides with the start of Redler's exhibition of West African images and aims to help raise awareness of the city.
British towns, cities and villages can be nominated online. Delegates from the winning town will be invited to visit Timbuktu.
Bids must be received by November 15. For details see www.stuartredler.com
