Hordes of families lined the streets around Campsie Park, Omagh today, as the town readied itself for its annual Twelfth celebrations.

Inside the park, bagpipers and flute-players assembled alongside an estimated 60 lodges, and at around 12.30pm the tannoy boomed out that the first marchers were to prepare to proceed.
