The capital of the US state of California has thrown a parade to celebrate three "hometown heroes" who helped thwart a gunman's rampage on a train travelling from Belgium to France.

College student Anthony Sadler, National Guard Specialist Alek Skarlatos and Airman Spencer Stone were cheered through the streets of Sacramento.

All three grew up as friends in the Sacramento area.
