AN Isle of Wight choir has produced a new recording of the national anthem which will be used at citizenship ceremonies on the Island.

The Isle of Wight Council has been using a recording which does not contain the words of the national anthem.

The new recording contains the lyrics, allowing people to sing the words in time.

Deputy Lord Lieutenant John Matthews arranged for the St John's Church Choir, Newport, to record the anthem.
