Victorious West Ham parade around East London after Europa Conference League win

ITV News Correspondent Geraint Vincent reports on the celebrations after West Ham ended their 43-year wait for a trophy

Jubilant West Ham players celebrated their victory over Fiorentina in the Europa Conference League final with a victory parade through the streets of east London - from the site of the club's former stadium in Upton Park to Stratford Town Hall.

The Hammers beat Fiorentina 2-1 in Prague on Wednesday night.

Jarrod Bowen’s last-minute winner saw West Ham end their 43-year wait for a trophy with a dramatic victory.

The playing squad and coaching staff paraded the club’s first major trophy since 1980 on an open-top bus.

Here is the exact route the bus took:

It started at the junction of Green Street and Barking Road, adjacent to the Boleyn Pub and The Champions Statue, before proceeding west along Barking Road, turning right on to Greengate Street.

It then continued along the A112 past Plaistow Park, Plaistow Station and Stratford Park, before ending its journey on West Ham Lane, outside the Old Town Hall in Stratford.

During the match, some fans clashed with riot police after setting off flares as they celebrated following the game.

A scuffle broke out after officers tried to confiscate a lit flare as fans gathered in the Old Town area of the city and riot police stormed a group after they lit a second flare, with fans responding by pelting the officers with bottles and missiles.

Earlier on Wednesday, Czech police said they had detained at least 16 Italian fans after they attacked West Ham supporters outside a bar, with videos shared on social media showing chairs and fireworks being thrown.

There was also controversy during the match as Cristiano Biraghi of Fiorentina was seen bleeding from the back of the head after he appeared to have been hit by an object thrown from a West Ham section of the stadium.

A place in next season’s Europa League means the club has qualified for Europe three seasons in a row, for the first time.

Declan Rice, destined to leave this summer but with the legacy of becoming only the third captain, along with Bobby Moore and Billy Bonds, will lift silverware in the club’s 128-year history.

The Hammers have given their fans, 5,000 of whom were – officially at least – in attendance and the 20,000-or so who just wanted to be in Prague for their first European final in 47 years, the ride of their lives.
