Muslims across the world are celebrating Eid-ul Fitr, marking the end of the holy month of Ramadan. In the UK, there were huge celebrations in Birmingham at the Small Heath Park. Over 100,000 people from five different mosques gathered together for the outdoor Eid Salah – the largest Eid celebration in Europe. Last year, 140,000 people attended the event, according to organisers, who expected a similarly huge turn-out today.

The event, hosted by Green Lane Masjid and Community Centre, is now in its eighth year and has seen growing numbers since 2012, where 12,000 people attended.
