THE streets may be filled with yellow bunting– but those who turn out to watch the Tour in York will probably miss the biggest yellow jersey of them all.
York Minster has joined in the Grand Depart frenzy by installing a huge yellow jersey banner on the roof of its 200ft Central Tower.
“We’ll have the cyclists travelling across the new piazza by the South Door on Sunday morning,” said the Dean, the Very Reverend Vivienne Faull.
“But knowing how many helicopters and aircraft will be filming and broadcasting to the global audience from the skies above the city, we couldn’t resist the opportunity.”
The 15m-square banner, which bears the legend “Allez, Alleluia!” with the York Minster symbol of crossed keys, will remain on top of the cathedral throughout the weekend.
