Blackpool Football Club celebrated promotion to the English Premier League with an open top parade along the city's famous golden mile.

The Tangerines were tipped by many for relegation at the start of the season, but shocked everyone by securing promotion to the top division, with a 3-2 win over Cardiff in the play-off final on Saturday.

Manager Ian Holloway has been credited with reviving the team's fortunes, and he spoke to BBC reporter Tony Livesey on the open-top bus.
