Luton celebrate League One title win with open-top bus parade through town in front of thousands of fans

LUTON celebrated winning the League One title with an open-top bus parade today.

Thousands of fans lined the streets as they hailed the return of their triumphant side to the town.

Luton's 3-1 win over Oxford was enough for them to seal the title ahead of Barnsley on the final day of the EFL season.

And the fans made sure they welcomed them in style with a parade and civic reception at the town hall.

Caretaker boss Mick Harford joined in the partying as he lifted the trophy aloft along with captain Alan Sheehan.

The victory over Oxford was Harford's last in control of the side having brought in mid-season when Nathan Jones left to join Stoke.
