A number of roads will be closed in Norwich today as the city hosts its Battle of Britain parade and the Freedom of the City.

There is no loading or parking on St. Giles from where it joins St. Peters Street up to St. Giles multi-storey car park from 7am until 1pm and vehicles leaving St. Giles Carpark will be directed down Upper Goat Lane.

Visitors to City Hall will not be able to use the main entrance from 11am until 12:15pm and should use the side entrance on Bethel Street.

There will be a flypast by a Spitfire over City Hall at midday.
