A choir was thrilled to sing at one of the country’s most prestigious venues - despite a bomb scare interrupting a service.

Stamford Singers were invited to Westminster Abbey last month to perform three Sunday services.

Security was heightened as the services took place just three days before Baroness Thatcher’s funeral. And just 15 minutes into the second service the building was evacuated after a suspicious package was found.

Luckily it was a false alarm and the choir was able to complete all three services.

Musical director Paul White said singing in such an illustrious venue was an incredible experience for the choir.
