Hundreds of people have taken part in Worthing Pride.

Many of them lined the route on Saturday, with about 500 joining in the parade itself.

The two-day event will end with a concert in Steyne Gardens, headlined by 911 and also featuring Danny Beard, Elektra Fence and the Cheeky Girls.

The West Sussex town's two new Labour MPs also took part in the parade.
