Sixty thousand chocolates and 1,000 boxes of confetti will be handed out to royal wedding train passengers when they alight at Windsor.

Great Western Railway (GWR) will give away the free goodies to "keep the party atmosphere going" for those travelling by rail on 19 May.

The network operator warned travellers should arrive early due to "very high demand" and "sizeable" queues.

It added it would also provide 10,000 free bottles of water.
