Thousands of people flocked to Sunderland for a day of road races - and some of them helped a local radio station celebrate its 20th birthday.

Sun FM set up a stage at Keel Square in the city centre, and invited everyone to join in its celebrations.

Former JLS star Aston Merrygold and his dancers were the headline act, following this week's sell out Precious tour, which took them to Manchester, Birmingham and London.

There was a full bill including local band the Lord Swans, who are part of the Sunniside Live festival, plus winners from Genfactor 2016, and acts from both Sunderland College and Sunderland University.

There were also cheerleaders from AAA performing between acts.
