A picturesque road in a Cotswolds village has been voted the most romantic street in Britain.

Copse Hill Road in Lower Slaughter won the Google Street View award after a two week vote by about 20,000 people.

Chris Dee, tourism manager for the Cotswolds, said he was "thrilled" the street had been voted the essence of English romance.

Front Street in Bamburgh, Northumberland, came second with Edinburgh's Royal Mile in at third.

Calum Milne, who manages a hotel in Lower Slaughter, said he was "chuffed to bits".

"What a wonderful accolade for such a beautiful village," he added.
