Timelapse footage shows Queen's beacon set alight on Quainton Hill

More than 900 beacons were set alight across the UK and overseas as part of the Queen's 90th birthday celebrations.

One of these beacons was lit in front of a large gathering on Quainton Hill in Buckinghamshire.

A BBC camera captured the beacon over the course of an hour before it crumbled, as can be seen in this timelapse footage.
