YOUNG competition entrants made a right royal effort when a Sidmouth childrenswear shop celebrated the Diamond Jubilee.

Monday’s Child launched an exclusive contest sponsored by Joules to win £100 of Little Joules clothing.

Children under the age of eight were invited to dress as a king or queen - and got their parents to take photos to send to the store.

Six finalists attended an official ceremony on Tuesday.

Judges Sylvia Brownlee and Di Bowerman said they found it particularly hard picking a winner.

In the boys’ category, Joel Kellow, four, was the victor, while Amelia Wadsworth, also four, celebrated success in the girls’ section.
