More than 500 vintage, veteran and classic cars took to the roads of Warwickshire for the Coventry Run.

Sunday's cavalcade was led by a 1903 Daimler and followed by a Rolls Royce Phantom, in recognition of the luxury car maker's 100th anniversary.

The cars set off from Coventry's War Memorial Park at 1015 BST and made their way across Warwickshire.

The event, which used to be called the Shakespeare Run, celebrated its 20th year.

The cavalcade drove through towns and villages throughout the county, including Kenilworth, Stratford-on-Avon, Warwick and Princethorpe.

The procession covered more than 60 miles in a colourful celebration of more than a century of motor manufacturing.
