Rail passengers are being reassured the choas after Brighton Pride last year- wont be repeated this year.

1000's were left stranded last year after record crowds came to see Britney.

Brighton train station shut, leaving many to sleep on the beach overnight.

The rail firm Govia Thameslink say they're better prepared this year though with a new queuing system in place.

The operator, which runs Southern, Thameslink and Gatwick Express services out of Brighton, is adding and lengthening services.

That's in addition to the late night services.

GTR has been planning for the event since January, working with the Brighton & Hove Pride organisers, Sussex Police and Brighton & Hove City Council.

The main parade starts at 11am this morning before Kylie Minogue headlines in Preston Park this evening.

Organisers are expecting hundreds of thousands of people at this years' event.
