Prince Charles talks with people as he walks through Clitheroe

HRH The Prince of Wales arrived at Clitheroe Railway Station just after 10am where he was greeted by crowds hoping to catch a glimpse of the heir to the throne.

Union Jack flags and bunting were out in force as the Prince of Wales made his way through the town shaking hands and stopping to talk with many of the people who had lined the streets.

Assistant Communications Secretary for Clarence House, Laura Cunningham, said: "The Prince is a champion of local produce and he is very keen to meet Lancashire producers and find out more about the fantastic work they do."

Cowman's butchers staff have been up all night creating the Prince of Wales Banger - half black pudding for Lancashire and half leek for Wales.
