Drug dealer accused in shooting tells jury he blames ‘five other gangs’

Brides-to-be packed out The Holiday Inn for The News wedding fair.

More than 20 exhibitors were on hand yesterday to help couples prepare for the big day with all manner of services.

The event took place at The Holiday Inn in Titchfield and bridal gowns, photographers and chocolate fountains were some of the most popular features.

David Hoggarth, from The News promotions department, said: 'We were concerned about the weather but that did not put people off. The trade was brisk.

'We had a good spread of companies here as well.

'It will be fair to say we had over 320 people through the door on the day.'
