Cromer Carnival royal family is almost complete

Cromer Carnival is one event away from completing the line-up of its royal family after a bumper turnout for the junior attendants' selection evening.

Eighteen girls were in the running for the honour at The Cottage on Tuesday evening.

But judges had to pick two - and went for 12-year-old Lucy Overment and 14-year-old Erin Holroyd.

The pair will join Miss Cromer Lucy Royle and senior attendant Hannah Lond-Caulk, who were selected at Buddies Bar and Lounge on May 5.

The junior attendants, who won �75 each, will join the other members of the royal family at carnival events in August, including the parade.

The final family members - the prince and princess - will be selected at an event on Cromer Pier forecourt on Sunday, between 3-5pm.

If the weather is unkind, the event will be held at the Red Lion function room.
