Olympic sailors in bus parade

Thousands of people lined the streets of Weymouth and Portland to cheer on members of the Team GB Olympic sailing team as they toured the area on an open-top bus.

The team won a gold and four silver medals in the sailing events held at Portland's National Sailing Academy.

The athletes, including four-time gold medallist Ben Ainslie, were on board the bus.

Wellwishers cheered as the bus passed through Fortuneswell, Portland Heights, Hope Square, Weymouth through Victoria Square and Wyke Regis, before a parade along Weymouth seafront.
