Sir David said the service was an important event in the calendar.

He said: “I came to Cambridgeshire as a young man and helped Peterborough to become a bit of a media hub.

“The city has been good to me and I hope it will be equally good to those who have come more recently.

“We live in a hugely vibrant multicultural community and I am sure that if we all work together there is more to come, both for us and for our children.”
