A six-year-old girl from York has attended the 60th anniversary celebration of the Coronation at Westminster Abbey.

Bailey Smith, from York, was given special permission to take the place of her grandfather Bev Jones, who was too ill to attend.

Mr Jones was the 13-year-old head chorister at York Minster when he was chosen to sing at the Queen's Coronation in 1953.
