DJ Brandon Nicholson gets the crowd going at The Mall, Hornchurch

One talented youngster was making a name for himself at the Diamond Jubilee street celebrations in The Mall, Hornchurch, today (Tuesday).

Emerson Park student Brandon Nicholson, who celebrates his 16th birthday tomorrow (Wednesday), got the crowd in the holiday mood with a selection of party tunes.
