Thousands of people gathered in Bristol on Saturday for the city's Pride celebrations.

The parade set off from Berkeley Square at 11am and travelled down Park Street to College Green where the main event was held.

It was led by the city's first openly-gay lord mayor, Councillor Peter Main.

People on the march through the city centre wanted to promote equality, diversity and being proud of who they are.

Organisers said around two or three thousand people attended the festival.
