Manchester Mayor Andy Burnham was spotted busting some moves to YMCA at Pride yesterday and it was incredible.

The recently elected mayor marched with the Manchester Police Force and pulled out the ultimate dad-dancing moves at the event.

The whole police force was in sync with the Labour politician, who can be seen singing along to the gay anthem by Village People.

The moment was caught on camera by PinkNews journalist, Benjamin Butterworth.

“I am totally living for @AndyBurnhamGM doing the YMCA with Manchester police,” he wrote alongside the video.

The video has been shared thousands of times and people have become obsessed with Burnham’s moves.

“Dad dancing at its best,” one person wrote.

A second added: “A great sight. Great to see the police really having fun and enjoying it too.”

Over 100 floats made their through the streets of the City before stopping at Manchester’s Gay Village.

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

Hett went viral on Twitter after getting the character Deirdre Barlow from the soap tattooed onto his leg.

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

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