A town crier gave the Queen a Royal birthday greeting in his own inimitable style.

Huddersfield’s Vic Watson took to the steps of Huddersfield Library on Saturday to celebrate Her Majesty’s 90th birthday by performing a special cry.

Dressed in his full bright blue crier costume, he rallied a crowd with his traditional call of “oyez, oyez, oyez” before launching into a rendition of a piece written to mark the occasion by the royalist Loyal Company of Town Criers of which he is a part.

Speaking afterwards Mr Watson said: “It was absolutely fabulous.

“All criers in the group are royalists who in 1999 did a cry swearing our allegiance to the Queen.”
