HUNDREDS attended the annual Pride of Longbridge Rally, held in Cofton Park on Saturday, (April 13).

The rally attracted car enthusiasts who brought along their vehicles with a connection to the former giant car plant, which for decades was a big employer for Bromsgrove and Rubery residents.

The event was originally organised in 2006 to mark the closure of the MG Rover plant - but it has been held every year since and continues to grow in popularity.

Many of the vehicles on display were driven to the rally by their owners from various parts of the country.

The event is always held in April as it was the month the factory closed in 2005.
