Watford FC fans celebrate English Premier League return

The town centre was awash with Watford fans yesterday as they celebrated a successful immediate return to the Premier League.

Following the promotion-securing victory against Millwall, fans descended on Watford High Street.

Hundreds congregated at the ponds to drink and sign songs in the summer-esque April sunshine.

However, despite bring warned earlier by police to respect coronavirus regulations, there was not much social distancing on display at the celebrations and very few people we wearing face masks.

The ponds were also left littered with empty beer cans and bottles, which have since been cleaned by the council.

Here are ten pictures recounting the celebrations:
