Imperial Commander given hero's welcome
People lined the street in Guiting Power to give a hero's welcome to Gold Cup winner Imperial Commander.
The champion horse, who brought the coveted trophy back to Gloucestershire for the first time since 1988, was given a victory parade through the village.
More than 200 people came to the Hollow Bottom pub to cheer the 7-1 shot who is trained in nearby Naunton, and to get a glimpse of the cup.
Shouts of three cheers rang out from the crowd as the horse's trainers and owners basked in the glory of a famous victory.
