Swindon, the Wiltshire town famous for it’s old rail works and Honda car factory is to be the first twin town of the Florida-based Walt Disney World.

It has been chosen thanks to the efforts of Rebecca Warren, 20, who lives in Swindon.   She produced a winning video slideshow extolling the virtues of the town, and will fly to Florida to unveil a “Walt Disney World Twinned with Swindon” plaque.

Miss Warren said: “I still cannot believe my entry has been selected.  What a great opportunity for Swindon.”
