A youngster sent a cheeky message to the Queen as part of a Suffolk town's Platinum Jubilee festival.

Woodbridge Festival's two days of jubilee events attracted an audience of thousands across some iconic locations in and around the town.

From Sutton Hoo to the Tide Mill, the town celebrated at a range of events focusing on food, drink and love music.

On Saturday, messages were projected onto the side of the Tide Mill from local children to the Queen.

One cheeky youngster's message said: "You look like the lady on the stamps (but older)".

Four-year-old Darcey also asked: "Can I try your crown on?"

Another child asked how it felt to sit on the throne for 70 years, while others added their thanks to the Monarch for her service to the country.
