Thousands gathered to mark solstice

Thousands of people have gathered at Stonehenge to mark this year's summer solstice.

Police said 12,000 attended the neolithic site in Wiltshire to watch the sun rise at 04:52 BST, while others gathered at the nearby Avebury stone circle.

The figure was down on the estimated 23,000 who attended last year and the 25,000 expected this year.

Wiltshire Police said the celebrations were "positive and peaceful".
