The annual Spalding flower parade has attracted thousands of spectators to the Lincolnshire town.

Floats decorated with 1.3 million tulips paraded through Spalding.

The theme for the parade was British icons and included floats featuring George and the Dragon, the Beatles and the Mini Cooper.

The parade lasted two hours and went from Camel Gate to Sir Halley Stewart Playing Field near the Market Place in the town.

A single float can be as long as 50ft (15m) and decorated with up to 100,000 tulips organisers said.
