Celebrations for the Queen's Platinum Jubilee will come alive with traditional food, drinks, and plenty of song and dance.

Residents planning to celebrate Her Majesty's landmark achievement in the street were asked to submit a road closure application to the council. 30 were received, and all of them were approved.

This means that 30 roads will be closed to traffic at various points between June 2 and June 5.

Councillor Carolyn Healy, natural and historical environment and cultural services boss at Telford & Wrekin Council said: “We can’t wait to see the variety of events and celebrations that groups and organisations within the borough are planning.
