The FA Vase winners toured the streets on an open-top bus as part of Morpeth Fair Day, to the delight of many thousands of cheering fans.

Ian Leech, a member of Morpeth Town Team, which organised the open-top bus parade, said: "It was an absolutely fantastic occasion the like of which Morpeth has never seen before.

"As we passed along Bridge Street, I could see people crying with emotion, cheering and applauding the team for their wonderful victory at Wembley.

"It was a fantastic turn-out and standing on the entertainment stage, all you could see down Bridge Street was a sea of happy faces. It was an incredible sight that will live for a long time in the memories of those who were there."
