Urgup in Turkey seeks English twin on St George's Day

St George may be the patron saint of England, but he was born some 2,000 miles away in what is now Turkey.

Now the small Turkish town of Urgup wants to celebrate its links with St George by finding a twin town in England.

Urgup is situated at the foot of Mount Erciyes in Central Anatolia, said to be the scene of the mythical showdown between St George and the dragon.
