City Bids Submitted
The towns hoping to be given city status by the Queen in her Diamond Jubilee year have submitted their bids.

Milton Keynes sent their bid by courier the same morning, while a delegation of MPs and schoolchildren from Luton travelled on two buses on Tuesday 24 May 2011 to deliver Luton's bid.
In all, more than 20 towns across the country want to become cities. Among the other applicants are Reading, Swindon, Middlesborough, Medway, Bolton, Chelmsford, Stockport, Perth, Gateshead, Ballymena, Guildford, Southend-on-Sea, Ipswich, Wrexham, Croydon and St Austell.
A decision on which applicants have been successful is due in February 2012.
