The Cavalcade has arrived in Calderdale.

Seven cyclists have set off from Walsden and are making their way towards Halifax. They are expected to arrive at around 2pm.

The cyclists are being cheered on by people who have lined the streets on St George’s day.

They are hoping to raise funds for 25 apprenticeships in Calderdale.

The team is joined by the Mayor of Calderdale, Coun John Hardy, and town crier Les Cutts.
