MORE than 100 people are taking part in this year's Oxford Pride parade. 

They set off from Ship Street shortly after noon and are making their way through the city centre and on to Oxpens.

Roads will be closed as the parade progresses down Cornmarket Street, Queen Street and Bonn Square, with delays to buses expected from noon to 1pm.

Organisers posted online confirming the parade was still on, and said: "It may be raining but Oxford Pride is still going ahead with sunny skies on the horizon. Bring your rainbow umbrellas and free ponchos are available."
