Members of the Indian community gathered to mark the anniversary of the day the country formed its own constitution.

The celebrations, organised by the Redbridge Indian Welfare Association, took place at Masala Restaurant, Eastern Avenue, Newbury Park on Friday.

General secretary Ram Bhandari called the event a success.

He said: “The celebrations went very well and everybody enjoyed it along with the lovely music.”

When India gained its independence as a constitutional monarchy it did not have a permanent constitution.

A modified version of the Government of India Act 1935 was used until January 26 1950, when the constitution was created.
