160,000 people have lined the streets of Brighton for the 25th anniversary of the city's Pride festival.

The procession itself was delayed by 90 minutes due to the discovery of a 'suspicious package' on the seafront but it was destroyed by police and the event continued along a diverted road, avoiding the seafront.

Here are the some of the most fantastic images from this year's festival:
