"Today is really about everyone coming together, putting all their differences aside, starting conversations, making friendships, sharing food from all over the world and deciding how they can make their community and their country more united and more tolerant."

In Cambridge, where Jo was a student people gathered at Meadows Community Centre to food and drink and to enjoy performances from bands and a choir.

The Great Get Together was the biggest neighbourhood celebration since the Queen's Diamond Jubilee.
