Diamond Jubilee celebrations at Jesmond Parish Church
At 10pm, the Diamond Jubilee beacon on the church tower was lit for an hour. It was one of over 4,000 beacons ignited around the UK and the Commonwealth, from Ben Nevis in Scotland to the Pacific island of Tonga. There were also 60 beacons lit along the length of Hadrian’s Wall.
