Tatton MP George Osborne joined merrymakers in celebrating this year's May Day festival.  

Speaking after the event, Mr Osborne said: “Knutsford Royal May Day is a highlight of my year. As any proud parent of children in the parade, I have seen first-hand how much hard work goes into the day.

"The 150th anniversary was truly special and even the weather seemed to know it. Steve Wilkinson and everyone involved deserve huge congratulations.”
