Flakefleet's BGT Homecoming - these were the scenes when the choir returned home

The Britain's Got Talent adventure may be finally over for Flakefleet School Choir after their impressive display in Sunday's final, but there was still one massive chapter left - this huge homecoming welcome.

There were around 200 people waiting to welcome the returning coach back to the Northfleet Avenue school last night, including parents, grandparents, friends and supportive residents from the town. (Pictures by Sean Taylor and Maureen Blair)

These two supporters had a special balloon ready to greet the Flakefleet School Choir when they returned from the final in London. They were among a couple of hundred to turn out for the 'homecoming'. Picture: Maureen Blair
