Watford FC parade marks promotion to Premier League
Thousands of people turned out in Watford to celebrate the town's promotion to the Premier League.
Players and staff travelled on open-top buses through the town to an event at Cassiobury Park, where they were greeted by cheering fans.
Captain and striker Troy Deeney said seeing the fans was "amazing" and "quite humbling".
He said he could not believe the number of people who had turned out just to cheer some people "who kick a football around".
Defender Tommie Hoban added: "I've never seen anything like it, it's been an amazing day."
It is believed about 20,000 Hornets fans poured into the park to celebrate with the team.
The open bus tour travelled along St Albans Road from Asda, arriving at Cassiobury Park at about 14:30 BST.
The players arrived on stage in the park half an hour later to huge cheers after a concert by an Elton John tribute act.
Watford found out they had been promoted after beating Brighton 2-0 last Saturday, but lost out on the Championship title after drawing 1-1 with Sheffield Wednesday at the weekend.
