Council praise Pride's 'great atmosphere'

The Parade was welcomed by crowds of thousands as it went through the city with waves and cheers and the atmosphere up at Preston Park was great, people enjoying themselves with friends and family. Once again our joint working with the police and other agencies has been very successful throughout the day and will continue through the rest of the weekend.
