Town crier title for railway


Martin Hallett has been crowned champion British town crier. He fought back from a recent throat infection to win the title, against 16 other town criers in Staffordshire.

Martin, from Gwynedd, drums up tourism at the Welsh Highland Heritage Railway in Porthmadog, as well as on local streets.
