Sunderland at Wembley: How the red and white army took over London

Sunderland's magnificent fans put on a stunning show of support at today's Checktrade Trophy final against Portsmouth.

Around 40,000 of them travelled down to London for the Wembley weekend, turning parts of the capital into a sea of red and white. From Covent Garden and Trafalgar Square on Friday evening to the stadium itself today, there were Mackems everywhere. Here are some of your pictures.
