Blackburn has come out on top in the awards for Britain's best high street.
Its leaders were presented with the £10,000 prize and a trophy at a ceremony in London as part of the Great British High Street Competition run by the Department for Communities and Local Government.
Winners in each category will get a share of £100,000 prize money as well as expert training from Google’s digital taskforce and a trip to Twitter UK’s London office to boost their social media skills.
Derby won the award for best city location while Bridgenorth in Somerset was winner in the large market town category.
Hebden Bridge won the small market town award and Falmouth was judged the best coastal community.
Winners in other categories were Hoole, (local centre), Pately Bridge (village), Myddleton Road, Haringey (London) and Stockton (rising star).
Communities secretary Sajid Javid said: 'Our high streets are going from strength to strength as this year’s Great British High Street competition shows.
'Town centres are being revitalised, with vacancy rates falling over the last year, and Blackburn is a great example of how hard work and support for local businesses can turn things around.'
