HUNDREDS of people marched through the streets of Winchester as Hampshire Pride returned to the city.

More than 400 people flocked to the city to take part in the event which celebrates love and diversity.

Groups such as the University of Winchester Busking Society entertained the crowd at the Great Hall before the parade started at 2pm.

Rainbow flags were being displayed at many venues across the city and at the Guildhall where the parade will end in the afternoon.

Phoebe Oakley, 19, a barista from Eastleigh, said:"We are celebrating love in all its shapes and forms.

"The atmosphere is just really friendly, everyone is smiling and welcoming.

"It's a great event. I hope it continues every year."
