The Queen will not attend a New Year's Day church service at Sandringham because of a lingering heavy cold, Buckingham Palace said.

It is the second festive appearance she has cancelled.

The 90-year-old monarch had already missed a church service on Christmas Day.

"The Queen does not yet feel ready to attend church as she is still recuperating from a heavy cold," the statement said.
