The sun was out for the hundreds parading through the streets to celebrate the LGBT+ community.

Worthing was covered in a rainbow-coloured sea of revellers who descended on the town for its annual pride parade this afternoon.

Among those in the crowd were new Labour MPs Tom Rutland and Beccy Cooper just two days after winning their respective seats in the General Election.

Cowboy hats proved to be a hit with those taking part along with colourful flower garland necklaces.

Even police officers got involved with the day's festivities, attaching pride and trans pride flags to their uniforms while marching alongside the parade.

It finished in Steyne Gardens where a festival site was set up complete with a stage for live music acts.
