Students teachers and dignitaries joined together in Cromer Town centre to wish the Queen a happy birthday.

Cromer's town crier Jason Bell made a public announcement around the flag pole outside Cromer's parish church on Thursday morning , sending hearty congratulations to the monarch on reaching her 90th birthday.

He read a proclamation which stated: 'I am commanded by the mayor, councillors and townspeople of Cromer situated in the fair county of Norfolk to offer our sincere and heartfelt congratulations to our most gracious majesty.

'We wish her continued good health and look forward to even more years of her reign over this fair land, God save the Queen.'
