They were invited by Cllr Norma Bacon, Chairman of Lichfield District Council, to spend a day taking in some of the area’s visitor attractions.

The group stopped off at Erasmus Darwin House, Lichfield Cathedral and The Samuel Johnson Birthplace before stopping off at St John’s and its chapel.

Cllr Bacon said: “Lichfield is such a beautiful city, with a wealth of fascinating places to visit, and I felt very proud to welcome the group.

“I would like to thank all the heritage attractions for hosting us and to the council’s Visit Lichfield team for helping to organise the day.”

    And the purpose of the day taking in tourist attractions was what exactly?
    It looks like a biggest bling medallion competition.

    We should not encourage gangs like this to roam around Lichfield, it will give the wrong impression to genuine tourists and scare the local populace.

    I wonder how many of them used Civic cars to transport them to Lichfield? Also, who paid for their lunch and other refreshments?

    Hope they’re not expecting free housing and benefits in September – that’s already taken.

    They had to show them Lichfield’s treasures, now.

    Give it a few years and they will all be residential developments.
