Tens of thousands of people are expected to pack into the city centre today to see Daniel Farke and his players go on a bus parade,

And St Giles on-the-Hill will ring out its bells from 11am-noon to salute the team for their amazing success.

The Rev Canon Darren Thornton, rural dean of the city and rector of St Giles and a Carrow Road season ticket holder, said it was a great way to be involved,

He said: 'I can't stop smiling with excitement that Norwich have done so well.
