Today (November 6) thousands of Sikhs will line the streets of Southall for Nagar Kirtan.

The religious procession has been held by Sikhs all over the world for more than 300 years and, in Britain, for over 40 years.

It began at 11.30am at Havelock Road Gurdwara and will finish at Park Avenue Gurdwara at around 4pm.

The day celebrates the Parkash Ustav, meaning birthday, of Guru Nanak, according to Visit Southall.

Free food will be given away at various food stalls on the route, along with people singing hymns and displays of martial-arts.
