Havering gets in the Royal Wedding party spirit

There could be almost 30 streets enjoying a party on the day of the Royal Wedding in Havering.

The deadline for applications to hold a celebration on April 29 was on Monday, by which time Havering Council had received 29 applications.

Officers will now look at the areas which have applied and consider whether the roads can be shut, and will inform applicants within the next few weeks of its decision.

Transport for London also issued advice this week to people planning to travel on the day of the Prince William’s marriage to Catherine Middleton.
