Cumbria's next High Sheriff officially nominated

Cumbria's next High Sheriff has been officially nominated at a ceremony in London

Diana Ruth Matthews took part in the historic event in the Royal Courts of Justice.

Mrs Matthews will take office in March from current High Sheriff Juliet Westoll who lives near Longtown.

Judges and court officials gathered at the Royal Courts of Justice in order to preside over the formal nomination of 51 High Sheriffs and their deputies from all over England and Wales.

Before she takes up office Mrs Matthews, from Windermere, will go through another ancient ceremony at the Privy Council in London.

There the Queen, using a silver bodkin, will prick their names on a parchment list to give their appointments the Royal seal of approval.
