The Queen gives out Maundy money to Blackburn pensioners

The Queen was in Blackburn today carrying out a tradition that dates back 350 years.

She was handing out Maundy money to 88 men and 88 women - a pair for each of her years.

And she even had time for a bite of Lancashire hotpot, as Amy Welch reports.
