HUNDREDS of Morris dancers visited Portsmouth over the weekend in a spectacular display of the ancient tradition.

About 200 people took part in the fifth Day of Dance staged by the Southsea-based Victory Morrismen. Eighteen groups – or sides, as they are known – from across the south of England flocked to the city on Saturday to join the day-long affair.
