Scots top three finish

For the first time in the contest’s history the top three podium places were filled by non English bands, as Co-operative Funeralcare under Allan Ramsay claimed their highest finish since 2004.

They led a ‘number of great performances’ according to the judges from the other main prizes winners, and it was one their MD was very proud of.

"We are delighted with the result," Allan told 4BR. "One of the judge’s remarked that on another day it was worthy of winning the British Open, so it took two very special performances to beat us."

He added: "I was especially pleased that all three recognised the orchestral qualities of our reading in terms of balance and colour, which was something we worked hard on in our preparations.

It now sets us up for the Doctor Martin Contest next weekend."
