Coton: Diamond Jubilee Beacon Lit

Around 150 people have marked the Queen's Diamond Jubilee by watching a beacon being lit at a Cambridgeshire Nature Reserve.

The beacon at Coton Countryside Nature Reserve was one of 38 being lit across Cambridgeshire last night (Monday) to mark the jubilee.

Carolin Gohler, from organising group Cambridgeshire Past, Present and Future, said: "It's fantastic, an absolutely wonderful endorsement to celebrate the Diamond Jubilee of Her Majesty The Queen.

I think it's a very worthwhile tribute and it's nice to get people out into the countryside to see Cambridge's historic skyline."

Beacons were also lit in places including Cambridge, Ely and Peterborough.

A total of 4,000 beacons have been lit across the Commonwealth.
