St Austell fails in its bid to become a city.

The town had applied to get the status for the Queen's Diamond Jubilee.

The government has picked Chelmsford, Perth and St Asaph in North Wales instead.

Armagh has been awarded the title of Lord Mayoralty.

Jill Trewhella launched the Duchy's bid and insists it has still made a difference:

"If people have felt inspired by, the fact that we actually did the bid in the first place, if they've felt inspired to move into St Austell and take up businesses here, to invest money here, developers. If that's all, I say all, that it's done, then it's done a big thing. People have taken more than a second look at St Austell.

"You don't enter something and it stops the minute, you know, either the decision's for or against. It's definitely ongoing and St Austell is on the up, and we have to look to the future. The past is in the past now, and the future is very rosy for us, we just have to grab all the opportunities that are there for us."

The Deputy Prime Minister said:

"Congratulations to Armagh, Chelmsford, Perth and St Asaph who have been granted these rare honours from a field of exceptional entrants. Across the United Kingdom, I have been moved by the pride and passion which people have shown in putting their nominations forward.  

"The standard of application was very high, and those who missed out should not be downhearted.  I hope the competition has given the residents of all of the places which applied a sense of civic pride, of collective ownership and of community spirit."
