Kent sisters remember Queen's Coronation song

Two sisters from Kent had the chance to go to a professional studio to record a song written for them by their father to mark the Queen's Coronation 60 years ago.

The record made by Margaret Marshall and Mary Thomas was forgotten until they rediscovered it recently.

The sisters were in their teens when they recorded the song in 1953, inspired by the Coronation decorations in London which their father thought "looked like fairyland".
