Arundel mayor James Stewart was joined by fellow councillors, residents and visitors, as well as schoolchildren from St Philip’s Catholic Primary School, to hear Arundel town crier Angela Standing announce the Queen’s birthday.

This was followed by a spontaneous, acapella God Save the Queen, with the first two verses sung by all who surrounded the war memorial and town flagpole, flying the Union Jack.

People watching then applauded as the small civic party disbanded.
