The annual St Patrick's Day parade has made its way through Birmingham.

It's reported that thousands of people lined the streets of Digbeth for the parade that is a hugely important celebration of Irish culture.

And with it being Mother's Day, it seemed more than fitting for this year's theme to be a celebration of International Women's Day.

The parade saw floats and costumes help to celebrate the strong women and mothers of the city.
