The show, which dates back to 1215, is a procession which takes the newly-elected Lord Mayor of the city of London to Westminster.

Team members from 15 of Greene King’s London pubs created costumes and props to dress up in character and bring their pub to life for the procession.

Rooney Anand, Greene King chief executive, said: “We feel it is a real privilege to have been asked to take part in the Lord Mayor’s Show.

“We are fortunate to have some of the city’s most characterful and iconic pubs so we decided to showcase some of them on our float.

“From the Punch & Judy in Covent Garden to the historic George Inn in Southwark, our team members brought our characterful pubs to life with enthusiasm and excitement.”

The Lord Mayor’s Show took place on Saturday, November 11.

Two vehicles have been involved in a crash in Bury St Edmunds this afternoon.

A Suffolk woman living with a debilitating condition has spoken out about her “depressing” battle to keep her disability benefit – and her life-line car.

An elderly woman called police after finding a burglar searching through her belongings at her home in Harwich.

A violent robber threatened a man with a knife in Essex before stealing packets of tobacco from him.

An Ipswich man has avoided going straight to jail for selling counterfeit goods on Facebook.

Authorities have been given permission to seize almost £117,000 from the bank account of an Ipswich mechanic found to have paid in £2.5million over the course of eight months.

If you have an odd £2.5m or so, you could make a bid for a hall with history. John Norman tells its story.
