A sea of orange rolled through Hounslow as thousands of Sikhs took to the streets to celebrate Vaisakhi on Sunday (April 4).

Worshippers from the Gurdwara Sri Guru Singh Sabha, in Hanworth Road, Hounslow, and the Guru Nanak Nishkam Sewak Jatha Gurdwara, in Martindale Road, Hounslow, joined the colourful parade.

Second World War veterans mingled with young Sikhs currently serving in the British Army, among the throng, for the 12th annual Vaisakhi Nagar Kirtan (procession) through Hounslow.
