The Daily Mirror reports that thousands of local people lined the streets of Axbridge, Somerset (population 2,025), to cheer their new village carnival queen – 15-year-old David Bridge.
‘Schoolboy David beat three girls to the title. He wore a tiara and flowing dress as he took pride of place in the parade. David proudly waved to 2,000 wellwishers who turned out to see him.’
I love funny old Britain sometimes :-)
