YouTube viewings of Guardian video soar

Nearly 100 people have now logged on to see the Chorley and Leyland Guardian's first ever YouTube video.

It's a 12-minute presentation of an after-dinner speech editor Chris Maguire gave at the recent Leyland Criket Club presentation night.

The speech also include a hilarious exchange between Maguire and Leyland veteran Sifton Prince -which ended with Prince grabbing the microphone.

Maguire said: "It's a bit of fun. When I looked last it had 85 views which is pretty good when you consider it's a bit of a niche audience and it's only been on for a week.

"It's another way of spreading the word about the Chorley and Leyland Guardian."
