Lucky Noah Emmott wins trip to London as part of Nelson Town Council coronation crown competition

More than 4,500 local schoolchildren were invited to take part in Nelson Town Council's extra special coronation event, and turned out in their thousands to celebrate the event and take part in the procession - led by the world famous Accrington Pipe Band.

Cardboard King crowns were delivered to 20 primary schools and nurseries across Nelson, with students being challenged to decorate their crowns as part of an exciting coronation competition, with a trip to London up for grabs for the winner and their family.

The children taking part were invited to wear their decorated crowns in a spectacular procession in Nelson town centre. The judging of the crowns then took place on the stage show of the coronation day itself, with BBC Radio Lancashire's Hussnain Hanif leading the judging from a final 10.
