The organisers of Liberation Day in Guernsey have released details of the island-wide Cavalcade route.

The Cavalcade of more than 100 military vehicles will visit all ten parishes in the island on Sunday 9 May to mark 76 years since the end of the Occupation. The route will follow the majority of the island coast road, beginning in Torteval.

After concerns about large crowds and gatherings, the States of Guernsey Liberation Day Committee say there will be plenty of events for all to enjoy within coronavirus safety guidelines.

They also say that sections of the Cavalcade will be streamed on social media for people to watch.

After starting in Torteval, the Cavalcade will then move onwards to St Andrew via St Saviour, to Castel and Vale Castle, through Vazon and Cobo and then onto Vale Church. It will then move through St Peter Port and St Martin before going onto Forest and ending at Rue de Longfrie.
