One of Cambridgeshire's oddest traditions gets under way this morning...
Princess Anne Comes To Northamptonshire
Princess Anne visits Northamptonshire to open the new Criminal Justice Centre and unveil Fire Memorial.
The Princess Royal, Princess Anne has been paying a visit to Northamptonshire today
She arrived by helicopter to the Brixworth Country Park where she unveiled a memorial to the firefighters.
The memorial was commissioned by the Fire and rescue service during 2012 to commemorate and honour Northamptonshire's firefighters and to provide a quiet place for remembrance and reflection by members of the community who have been affected by fire in some way.
The Princess Royal is a patron of the Firefighters Memorial Trust.
Children from Brixworth Primary School and Walgrave Primary School also attend the ceremony and a child from each school presented the Princess Royal with a posy.
Continuing her tour of the county she went to unveil a plaque at the new Criminal Justice Centre in Northampton.
The centre opened in September last year and its used to detain prisoners before they appear at court.
She was given a tour of the building by Deputy Chief Constable Martin Jelley
He told Heart she was very impressed:
"I think the Princess Royal really enjoyed her visit, she spent a lot of time with the staff which was great, and obviously saw all the new facilities here at Brackmills"
Leaving Northampton the Princess went to open a new Hankook Tyres Warehouse in Daventry.
The first rail freight service from the UK to China has arrived.
