THOUSANDS of residents and visitors descended into Knutsford today as the town celebrated the 149th Royal May Day.

Jenny Warburton, 13, was crowned as the May Queen on the Heath after a procession that wound its way through the town's streets. 

Well-wishers were aplenty on Toft Road, while King Street was full to bursting with organisers declaring it was one of the busiest May Day's they had ever seen.
