The Queen's fellow nonagenarians have been given a special invitation to join her 90th birthday celebrations in Cromer.

Residents in the town celebrating their 90th, or who are already 90, are being given a particularly warm welcome to the ceremony on Thursday, April 21.

Town crier Jason Bell will be congratulating the Queen with a public announcement outside the parish church at 11am.

Crowds will then join in a rendition of happy birthday in a curtain raiser to the celebration that will see a torch lit procession from the church at 7pm to The Old Lookout on East Cliff followed by the lighting of a beacon and firework display.

Cromer town councillor John Frosdick, who is helping to organise the occasion, said: 'Some of the elderly people may not wish to come out in the evening for the celebrations and we want as many people in the town involved as possible.'
