Ten of the best pictures from the Leeds West Indian Carnival

Leeds was treated to a stunning spectacle of colour and culture with the West Indian Carnival.

It was the 52nd carnival and is now one of the longest running events of its kind in Europe and the Yorkshire Evening Post was on hand to capture the action.

The West Indian carnival was a sea of colour, culture and community.
