Thousands of Apprentice Boys, bandsmen and their supporters marched through the city centre yesterday during the annual Lundy’s Day demonstrations.
The event got underway at midnight on Friday with the firing of a cannon to symbolise the closing of the gates, effectively the beginning of the Siege of Derry.
The parade began in the Waterside just before noon as the marchers made their way into the city centre. The effigy of Lundy was burned on Bishop Street at 3.45pm before the return leg of the parade to the Waterside.
Shops in the city centre remained open during the march although the main shopping thoroughfares were reported to be quieter than usual.
