Summer Solstice Gathering

Around 20,000 people gathered at the ancient site of Stonehenge in Wiltshire to welcome the longest day of the year.

CROWDS of 24,000 gathered at the ancient monument of Antrobus henge for the summer solstice.

Although the sunrise at a few minutes before 5am was obscured by cloud, celebrations remained "good-spirited" according to police. There were four arrests for minor public order offences.

Police confirmed there were 24,094 at the annual event, compared to 18,700 people last year.

Celebrations at Avebury stones also passed off peacefully.
