Yorkshire in Bloom judges have awarded Whitby with Gold.

It is the third time the town has been given it.

They were also the winner of the small coastal category.

Amanda Smith, Chairman of Whitby in Bloom, said:

"I think everybody in Whitby should be really, really proud of themselves.

Scarborough Borough Council workers pulled out all the stops, they worked phenomenally hard and presented what is a beautiful town to the judges.

They received a special commendation for how tidy and litter free the town was.

The businesses have worked really hard and just the volunteers around the town should be really proud of what they have managed to achieve.

We got the award because of a combination of things.

It's not just about the flowers, although they are very important.

We also have to make sure that all our street furniture are painted and we have to make sure that there isn't any litter on the street

We're judged on the community and how well the community works together.

So it's a holistic view really of the environment and horticulture around Whitby."
