Queen Mother.
St Jerome's Church Formby flag at half mast for Queen Mum.
Local and national media have reported in the UK a lot about the death of the countries most popular Royal, The Queen Mother.  We would just like to add our own message of sympathy to the Royal family and our Queen!

The procession for the Queen Mother to lie in state was today, it involved 250,000 people and nearly 2500 police, there was no trouble and the weather remained good for the day.   The procession was over two and half miles long and involved most of the remaining Royal Family and 1700 military personnel. 

The coffin will lie in state till Tuesday the day for the Funeral.  With so many people in attendance Westminster Hall may well stay open beyond the 6pm closing time originally planned.  Also a carpet has been laid in the Hall to muffle the sound of the feet of those who wish to pay their last respects.

The Queen Mother was well loved by her people and was always very active, all off us here at Southport Reporter send our condolences to the Royal Family and our last respects to the Queen Mother, and she will be missed.   

Flags have been at half mast through out Sefton.
