The City of London’s 1297 copy of the Magna Carta has travelled through the capital during the Lord Mayor’s Show.
The parade through the City marked Alan Yarrow taking up the post of the 687th Lord Mayor of London.
Around half a million people are thought to have turned out to watch the annual pageant which featured more than 7,000 participants and 19 bands.
The 800th anniversary of Magna Carta will be marked in major commemorative events in 2015.
