Crowds are packing in to Chichester Festival Theatre this afternoon to see Tim Peake touch down for a special visit.
The astronaut is to be presented with the Freedom of the City, a very special honour bestowed by the city council, in a ceremony starting at 2.30pm.
Speaking to the Observer, Mayor of Chichester Peter Evans said: "It's really great that we have got a young man who has grown up on Chichester and blossomed.
"He was up in space communicating with schools, colleges and universities, sharing his experience. He's a great advocate of space and mankind."
