Thousands of people lined the streets of central London today to watch floats, carriages, performers - and Jessica Ennis - in the Lord Mayor's Show.

The annual parade marked the inauguration of the 685th Lord Mayor of the City of London, Alderman Roger Gifford, who was carried through the capital in a golden coach.
