ITALIAN mayor Diego Guerrini wants the five twin towns to strengthen business, education and tourism links.

Mr Guerrini told The Hunts Post: “Now we have signed, the important thing for the towns is to work together to develop deep roots with the European community.

“Hopefully, it won’t take too long to get to that point. We have a deal that can make our community open up to England.

“This opportunity allows us to exchange in levels of culture, European community and European spirit.

“It will benefit our towns specifically in economic, education and tourism terms.”
