A Yorkshire man was so delighted with his new fitted kitchen he got a lookalike of the Queen to officially open it.

Alan Atkinson, a retired British Airways pilot, invited 30 friends to the ceremony at his home in Normanby, North Yorkshire - and laid on a red carpet, bunting and Union Jack.

Impersonator Elizabeth Richard wore a tiara and an ivory gown with a blue sash - and knighted the carpenter who worked on the kitchen units reports The Sun.
