OXFORD United celebrated their promotion to the second tier of English football with an open-top bus tour on Monday evening.

The parade started at The Plain, before then going over Magdalen Bridge, and along the High Street towards Oxford Town Hall.

Players and staff then entered the Town Hall, where they had been invited by Oxford City Council as guests for a civic ceremony.
