Bromley Council is ensuring its more patriotic residents can enjoy a Royal Wedding to remember by scrapping road closure fees.

Normally road closure fees cost £552 but on May 19 - the day Prince Harry marries Meghan Markle - no such fee will be required.

However, those wanting to organise a street party and the Big Lunch have until March 9 to submit an application.

Executive councillor for Environment, William Huntington-Thresher, said: “The Royal Wedding will be one of the highlights of 2018 and I expect that many residents will be looking to celebrate the occasion.

"It will be a great time to bring our communities and neighbourhoods together. The council would like to facilitate your celebrations.”

Once an application is approved, the emergency services, public utility and bus companies will be informed.

Councillor Huntington-Thresher added: "I am pleased to say that our borough’s history of street parties and the community spirit it represents is continuing – and our Street Friends are a shining example of this."

Street party application forms can be found here.

Road closure fees for the Big Lunch on June 3 will also be removed.
