Two stone markers on the M62 denoting the old Lancashire/Yorkshire boundary are to be listed as part of the Queen's Platinum Jubilee celebrations.

The two stones were unveiled by the Queen in 1971 to mark the completion of the cross-border section of the motorway between Milnrow in Rochdale and Ripponden in West Yorkshire.

Each of the border stones carries a large white or red rose - a reminder of the historic rivalry between the Wars of the Roses houses of York and Lancaster.
