Thousands of people lined the streets of Manchester today for the annual Pride parade.

Over 3,000 people turned out for the event which was themed Class of 2017.

The event is celebrating it’s 25th year of being held in the city with over 100 floats leading the parade through Liverpool Road up to Manchester’s Gay Village.

The Coronation Street float paid tribute to super fan Martyn Hett who was killed in the Manchester Arena bombing.

Those at the event are treated to performances by Pixie Lott, Take That and former Spice Girl Melanie C.
