CROWDS of people are gathering as Prince William and Kate Middleton visit East Lancashire today.

The Royal couple are visiting Darwen Aldridge Academy for a tour around the art department before making their way to Witton Country Park, Blackburn, one of the first sites to be protected as part of the Queen Elizabeth II Fields Challenge.

While at the park William will sign the Deed of Dedication to help protect the beauty spot from development in the future.
