The Queen's visit to Blackburn
All the excitement of the Queen and Duke of Edinburgh's visit to Blackburn and the Ribble Valley...
The Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh arrived in Blackburn on the Royal train, The Royal Messenger, where they were greeted by children from local schools before the Queen unveiled a plaque at the new £45m Mall shopping development in the town centre.
This is the Queen's first visit since 1987 and hundreds of people lined Church Street in Blackburn for a glimpse of the Royal couple before they left to visit Whitewell.
