A Norfolk town has made the final of an online competition to find the UK’s top town or city.

King’s Lynn is up against Liverpool in a social media poll looking to crown the UK’s top place.

The World Cup of UK Towns & Cities began on Twitter five months ago to boost spirits in lockdown.

Around 500 of the country’s largest places have been narrowed down to the final two - King’s Lynn and Liverpool. Voting for the final poll opened just after 9am today and will be open for 72 hours.

James Bagge, Love West Norfolk ambassador, said: “King’s Lynn thoroughly deserves to be in the final with Liverpool.
