Crowds lined the streets of Coventry to celebrate Vaisakhi over the weekend.

Throughout April, Sikhs up and down the country honour the birth of Khalsa - the term for the collective of initiated Sikhs who keep a distinct physical identity and moral code of conduct gifted to them by the 10th Sikh Guru, Guru Gobind Singh Ji.
