TAYLORS of Harrogate celebrated Yorkshire Day on Monday by sending its “Little Urn” van to the set of Emmerdale.

The trip to West Yorkshire was one of its less adventurous, following a tour of the United States and England, but the supply of Yorkshire Tea was much appreciated by the cast and crew.

The van then returned to Harrogate to serve up “a proper brew” for people in its home town.

Vicky Turner, a member of the Brew Crew, said: “It was a fantastic day.

“We served a proper brew to the cast, including the actors who play Eric and Val Pollard and their adopted daughter, Amy Wyatt.

“They were all there having a lovely cup of tea with us - out of a proper china cup!”

The Little Urn is now having a well-earned break while some repairs are carried out, but is set to be back on the road in the future to fulfill its mission of rescuing people from bad tea.
