Thousands of Red Sox fans have lined the city's narrow streets for a parade to celebrate the team's World Series victory over St. Louis Cardinals.

Winning the series 4-2 in Game 6 at Fenway Park on Thursday, they clinched the title in front of their own fans for the first time in 95 years.

Extra train services had to be scheduled as people clamoured to see the team, coaches and officials travelling on amphibious duck boats through the city.
