RESIDENTS braved the pouring rain to witness the Coronation of King Charles III in Worcester city centre.

Cathedral Square, at the top of Worcester's High Street, had a large screen erected for the public to watch the coronation.

Many people were deterred from visiting the city centre due to the weather, but some hardy people were still happy to be outside with umbrellas and raincoats at the ready.

“I wanted to come and see the Coronation here instead and although the weather isn’t the best, it’s good to see some people have still been able to come out.”
