A Dublin man has been made Lord Mayor of the City of London in a lavish ceremony this afternoon.

Vincent Keaveney, a commercial lawyer, is the first Irishman to take up the role in over 800 years.

The Lord Mayor of the City of London serves as the elected head of the City of London Corporation and their terms last one year.

The British capital's financial district's mayorship dates back to the 12th Century, and has continued as a separate office to the rest of the city's government ever since.

Historical re-enactors, cavalry, and double-decker buses followed the new Mayor's golden carriage in a parade through the streets on Saturday afternoon.
