Hundreds join Wolverhampton Sikh Vaisakhi celebrations

Hundreds of people have celebrated the Sikh festival of Vaisakhi in Wolverhampton.

Processions made their way to Goldthorn Park in the city where celebrations continued.

The event marks the formation of the Sikh nation - or Khalsa Panth - in the 17th Century and coincides with the harvest festival in India.

Events to mark the festival in the West Midlands are among the biggest in the UK.
