‘PRESTON is Britain’s newest city. Preston’s history dates back to the Doomsday Book. Preston is home to the first Spar Shop ‘8 til late’, which opened in 1981.

Andrew Flintoff has been given the freedom of Preston

We could go on. We could tell you that Preston eatery ‘Bistro French Live’ was featured in the Guinness Book of Records as having the widest selection of wines and spirits in the country.

Preston’s St Walburge’s Church tower contains a single bell of 30 Cwt, thought to be the heaviest swinging bell in Lancashire. Preston has a large bus station with 79 gates.

And now another passage has been written in the history of this truly awesome place as we learn in the Sun that Preston is the name of Britney Spears’ new baby.

To give him his dues, the baby’s full name is Preston Michael Spears Federline. And we duly offer a special “Owdo” to young Preston.

And we are more than happy to hear that that both baby and mother are doing just great. “She is inseparable from the baby,” says a source. “She is so happy.”

As too is Preston. But if his name’s as guide, he’ll not be letting things go to his head. “Tha met bi born but th’art not dee-erd yet”, as he will be wont to say when he is able.

But patience, son. Th’arl come to thi cake an’ milk… Eeeeee lad…’
