Councillor Alex Miscandlon clearly delighted in the card skills of magician Ricky Lock, but he also had plenty of praise for the Second World War Flypast of a Spitfire and Lancaster Bomber which capped off a memorable day.

He said: “The whole day was absolutely fantastic. The weather was great and the people were great and the flypast was magnificent. I’m a petrolhead and I thoroughly the cars and motorcycles spread down the high street.”

On top of a display of vintage vehicles, there was an array of music, song and dance finishing with the Romford Drum and Trumpet Corp and Peterborough Highland Band.
