Traffic is returning to normal as thousands of people across Sheffield make their way to work but it may not be as plain sailing this evening.

Sheffield could be set for a few traffic headaches later this evening due to a number of big events happening around the city.

A number of roads will be closed as Sheffield United celebrate their promotion with an open top bus parade through the city.
