Around 200 staff members of the University of Chester paraded through the city on Friday as part of its spring graduation ceremonies.

The procession, one of the highlights of its 175th anniversary, was followed by a ceremony in Chester Cathedral.

Staff dressed in full graduation regalia joined Vice-Chancellor Prof Tim Wheeler and civic dignitaries.

The university is only pre-dated in England by Oxford, Cambridge, London and Durham.
