Canaries Open Top Bus Celebration

Around 35 thousand Norwich City fans packed into Norwich city centre to celebrate them lifting the League One title.

Fans started taking their places along the route from lunchtime on Thursday to make sure they had the best possible view of the players as they took an open-top bus trip through the city centre.

The procession went from St Stephens through to Castle Meadow, before the players appeared at the top of Castle Mound to present the trophy to the thousands of fans looking up.

Delia Smith told Heart 'I've always said they're the best supporters in the world, and I haven't changed that.  I've always said we're going to be the best football club in the world, and I haven't changed that either.'

Defender Michael Nelson was on the bus and said 'It's brilliant - coming here on the bus and seeing the thousands of people out of the streets, and then coming here and they're still here in their thousands. It's brilliant.'

Police in Norwich say they're pleased with how well the whole evening went.

City Centre Safer Neighbourhood Team Inspector Ross McDermott said “The event was carefully planned and robustly managed by the Police and our partner agencies so as to ensure that people were able to enjoy the celebrations. 

“No arrests were made and the event passed off smoothly.  We are pleased that Norwich fans were able to enjoy the evening peacefully as it was a great opportunity for families to benefit from occasion.”
