Afterwards, Rev Frost, Mr Chikoto and the village’s oldest resident, June Thomson, were lifted aloft and carried through the streets of the village where the charter was again read outside the White Hart and in The Jamb.
The Corby Pole Fair is a major community celebration for the town. In the trending video, four white men were seen carrying Chikoto on a wooden carriage on the streets of London.
