Braintree: Carnival spectacular

7:51pm Saturday 8th June 2013

Thousands of people lined the streets for this year's Braintree Carnival.

A colourful procession of floats made its way through Lakes Road, Manor Street, the High Street, Pierrefitte Way, Panfield Lane to Meadowside today.

Tess O'Connor, 45, of the Witham Twirlettes said: "Everyone is full of spirit."

Many spectators said that this year's event was far better than last year's.
