Over 26,000 people took to London’s streets to celebrate Pride on Saturday, with around one million lining up to watch the festivities.

Pride in London 2017 marked 50 years since the Sexual Offences Act 1967, which decriminalised homosexuality in England and Wales.

People were out in force for the parade with the emergency services who helped after Grenfell Tower and the recent terror attacks chosen to launch the march.

The parade began north of Oxford Circus on Regent Street and took a 1.4-mile route through the city.

It comes after what is believed to be the world’s largest Pride festival, with over 100 events having taken place since Saturday June 24.
