Queen and Prince Philip visit the Isles of Scilly


The Queen has visited the Isles of Scilly for the first time in nearly 45 years.

The Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh, who flew into St Mary's, took a tour of the new Five Islands school.

Afterwards, many of the islands' 2,000 residents turned out to see them inspect the new Sea Fisheries vessel.

The royal couple last visited the Isles of Scilly in 1967, when they were accompanied by a young Prince Charles and Princess Anne.
