PROUD pensioner Brian Horridge publicly demonstrated his loyalty to the throne on Wednesday (Feb 6).

To mark the 50th anniversary of Princess Elizabeth becoming Queen, Mr Horridge (69) displayed a portrait of Her Majesty in the upstairs window of his home Milltown Street, Radcliffe. And in the downstairs window hangs a tapestry commemorating the Silver Jubilee of 1977.

He is pictured outside his home with his tributes to the Queen.

Mr Horridge said: "I have a great deal of respect for the Queen, and the Royal Family as a whole. I like them all and I take no notice of the scandal."
