Thousands of people gathered under bright sunshine to take part in ‘Derry Day’ in Derry city centre on Saturday.

Apprentice Boys from Ireland and Britain travelled to the city for the annual Relief of Derry celebrations, which commemorate the lifting of the Siege of Derry in 1689.

A historic dramatisation was staged at Carlisle Circus while Apprentice Boys clubs and bands made their way through the city centre.

The ABOD Associated Club General Committee had notified the Parades Commission it expected 10,000 Apprentice Boys and 110 bands to be watched by 2,000 spectators on Saturday.
